Starlink



Rough model of SpaceX Starlink satellite (two versions, left/right handed for stacking). Prograde/Retrograde/OrbitNormal/OrbitAntiNormal/Nadir+Sun Pointing functions. Auto deploy sequence after 2000s (Nadir Pointing, deploy Solar Array). One-hit deployment of 60 sats from Falcon9.


Cheers,
Brian

Thanks Brian!

Pretty fun to deploy satellites by hurling them from a rotating second stage.

Yeah! :-D
I've been trying to see the Starlink "train" going over, two opportunities last night but clouded out both times.

Heavens Above lists magnitudes from 3 to 6, so they are not that bright.

Indeed, not bright like ISS or even Dragon, but should be easily visible if you are outside the city (if clouds allow!). I guess the sats will moving further apart over time, but I'm still going to try and have a look at them.
