If you look into the sky you will see MANY satellites move mostly from the west to the east.

Starlink is launching over 60 satellites for internet service across the globe.

SpaceX and more private satellites planned as we speak are on their 6th batch.
350.

Times are really changing.... Sad but true.

Ah, connectivity. Did they really get that many more up in the sky that quick though? I would imagine as this thing dies off the demand will go back to normal and the need for so many won't be present anymore.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carried 60 new Starlink satellites, the sixth batch of internet satellites for the company, on March 18, 2020. I believe there were more that followed.

In which time zone? Either way unfortunately will still have some daylight.
Kind of cloudy here in the PNW too but I'll go out and take a look!
