On May 23rd SpaceX launched 60 satellites the first installment of a Starlink "mega-constellation" that could number 12,000 by the time the project is complete. Starlink plans to surround the Earth with satellites and provide broadband internet to every corner of the globe! There are reports that the satellites flare when the sun hits their flat surface and are very bright like a magnitude 0, brighter than any star! Astronomers won't be happy, however, until SpaceX finds a way to dim these flares.
