Space invaders!

Created: Thursday, 02 January 2020 Written by Julie Savill

SpaceX is the space explorer business started by American entrepreneur Elon Musk. These satellites appear as a line of 60 lights, and they were especially visible from southwest France the night of December 25-26, 2019.

They are set to appear again over France tonight, from around 18-19h. They will then disappear gradually, as they move away from the Earth.
