DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - Friday evening shortly after 6 p.m. many KWQC viewers saw a line of StarLink satellites fly over. These appear as a line of dots moving across the sky all following each other closely as they are actually multiple satellites travelling in a row in close proximity. Thursday evening a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket was launched carrying 48 Starlink satellites. These satellites are designed to provide high-speed internet coverage to users around the world below, particularly those in remote and rural areas that do not have access to traditional internet connections. These satellites will be visible, again, on Sunday evening and it might be more impressive than Friday evening’s flyover.
