SpaceX introduced 60 more Starlink satellites last month and Elon Musk said there are now 420 of them in orbit.
SpaceX is targeting coverage in North America and Canada by the end of 2020 and the world in 2021.
There have actually been complaints about the brightness of the satellites and their influence on the night sky.
While some people who stayed up late to see them, either missed them or just saw a handful.
In a tweet, Elon Musk stated: “We are taking some key actions to reduce satellite brightness btw. Ought to be much less obvious during orbit raise by changing photovoltaic panel angle & all sats get sunshades starting with launch 9.”
