Many ABC13 viewers witnessed the Space X Starlink satellites on Friday night. If you missed viewing them, you can see them again Saturday night.

Starlink will be visible on Saturday at 8:53 p.m., for about 5 minutes. The satellites will travel across the night sky from W to NE.

The Starlink satellites are a “satellite train” of lights. These are communication satellites providing internet coverage on a global scale. The satellites rotate the globe about 340 miles above the ground.
