Looking at the stars has always been something I liked to do. I love sitting out on a summer night and staring up hoping to catch a satellite going by in the stars.

Lately, the big site in the sky is the Starlink satellites. If you haven't seen them yet they are the line of lines that travel across the sky like a train. They move quickly so they are often hard to spot but there is a website you can go to find out when they will fly by you it is findstarlink.com.
