If I'm reading this correctly, the SpaceX Starlink chain of 60 satellites will pass over the central portion of the country from SW to NE between 9:36 to 9:41 Eastern tonight.

Link to website. Scroll down to the table list. The first entry at the top (29-May 21:35) has a map link on the right. Click the link and the projected trajectory path will open.

Hopefully this is correct.

This pass will ingress at the Oregon/Washington border going from SW to NE; pass through Idaho and Montana before egressing into Canada. If you live in the PNW then you should have a good show tonight if you’re not cloud covered.

Saw 20-30 of them 3 nights ago in northeast Alabama. Really cool! They are spreading out so probably won’t be as spectacular.

Graffiti in the sky. I’d rather see the stars.
