Starlink satellites interfere with radar astronomy

Post by Brian »

"Leave it to Starlink. SpaceX's growing constellation of internet satellites is finding new ways to interfere with astronomy. This time it's radar astronomy"

Instead of echoes from meteors, observers are seeing multiple echoes from Starlink satellites.
