On April 22, 2020, at 3:30 p.m. EDT (19:30 UTC), SpaceX launched 60 new Starlink satellites into orbit aboard the Falcon 9 rocket that has been used three times before. The new satellites will join other 360 satellites that are already in orbit, and they all will form a constellation designed to provide global internet coverage from space.
You can find the new 60 Starlink satellites in the astronomical application Star Walk 2 and watch another SpaceX’s ‘train’ in the sky. To do it, open the app, go to the search, choose the satellite icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and tap on the STARLINK-6 GROUP at the top of the ‘Main Satellites’ list.
