Yep. I'd just stepped outside to take some SQM-L readings, to see if the haze that's been bugging my area for the past several weeks had gotten any better. A bright moving object to my NNW at about 60° altitude caught my eye... and as I looked, a line of dozens more followed right behind it, headed toward my NE horizon. Most of them were separated by about 1.5-2 degrees, but a couple of them were less than a quarter-degree apart. I lost count at sixty.
This was the first time I've seen them... and I have to say that I was neither pleased, nor impressed. Quite the opposite, in fact... and like PirateMike, my personal preference would be that they all fade into oblivion.
Maybe please some of you make effort to learn just a tiny bit more about things before you over-react..
These results OF VERY RECENT launches all described above aren't at their final spacing and orbit.
The launches are happening at fast pace, promised to make deadlines to the FCC at initial open mega-constellations approval hearings----you know, the ones NONE of you complainers were at to voice and object to them before approval?
At least initially Elon Musk offered acknowleged to stargazers tweeting out "they wouldn't be bright, and anyways the ISS is bright because it has lights on it." (May 2019).
