53 other satellites in orbit

Yesterday, SpaceX launched 53 more satellites from Starlink.

These communications satellites are placed in low orbit (only 550 kilometers altitude) and are designed to provide a very high-speed global Internet network.

These satellites are constantly being sent into space, as you can read here.

As we have already published, sometimes we see in the sky “trains / light trains” that are these satellites (here, here and here).
Sometimes one of the satellites even collides with the earth, detecting a fireball tearing in the sky (here and here).
