13 June Predicted Bright Starlink Passes

Post by Christopher K. »

Between 9:10pm and 9:45pm CDT tonight about nineteen Starlinks are predicted to pass with magnitudes of 2.8 down to 2.6.
All of them will come from the southwest. All will peak in angular height from the horizon in the southeast; these peaks will average about seventy-one degrees. A binocular may help see these passes. Please utilize Chris Peat's Heavens Above website for more accurate information.

15 June 2020 Predicted Bright Starlink Passes

Post by Christopher K. »

Between 8:32pm and 9:45pm CDT tonight two Starlinks are predicted to pass with magnitudes of 2.8 down to 2.7. I don't recommend attempt to spot them as the forecast is just not good enough. However, in anticipation of there being slightly better conditions where you are, you can go to Heavens Above to acquire more accurate information.
