Yup, you got StarLinked!
I set TheSkyX Pro’s location to San Antonio, TX, turned on display satellites, and stepped through at one minute intervals.
Starting around 8:46pm local time, a cluster of StarLink satellites rose in the NW and set in the SE. They disappeared over the SE horizon around 8:55pm local time.
It looked like the satellites in this group were:
There were also some StarLink and Falcon9 rocket bodies and parts in nearly the same orbits at the same time.
And soon we’ll have tens of thousands of these things up there. Boggles the mind. And I assume (yeah I know all about assumptions) that eventually instead of these things traveling in separate clumps, they’ll be pretty much continuous.
What, me worry?

Subject: [ap-gto] Parade of Sattelites
Did anyone see the parade of sattelites that passed overhead about 9:00 pm CDT tonight (Southeast Texas location) ? There must have been two dozen spaced out evenly. The string stretched across the whole sky from Northwest to South east. Talk about messing up a bunch of astro-images. Does anyone know what these are ? Space-X ?
