What time can you see the Starlink satellites tonight?

At around 3.48am in the early hours of May 27, Starlink satellites will fly over the region from southwest to east.

The satellites are expected to be visible for five minutes.

What do they look like?

Some of the satellites may appear like a slow moving star going in a straight line.

The satellites won’t ‘twinkle’ like a star but they may appear and disappear depending on cloud cover and atmospheric conditions.

Almost all of the satellites will be travelling in the same direction, with a similar trajectory to previous days.

But even when the satellites pass nearby, many things need to go right for them to reflect enough sunlight to be seen.
