There will be 17  satellites visible to the naked eye tonight, weather permitting (and it appears that the weather will permit!).

The Hubble Space Telescope will make an appearance just before a line of 16 of SpaceX's Skylink Satellites, all beginning around 8:05 pm.

The weather forecast from the Storm Team 3 Weather Lab says that we'll have partly cloudy skies tonight which should give us a clear enough view of the birds.

According to Wikipedia, the Starlink system is a formation of satellites created to provide satellite internet access to underserved areas. The plan for the satellites provides for a quite interesting read.

You can follow this link to find where the satellites will be visible in YOUR sky. Just give the website your location information and Google Maps will do the rest. Really, keep the website handy: it shows when many space objects will be visible to YOUR eye, in YOUR location. Very cool!
