This is a provisional display of two placeholder objects rom the recent Starlink launch, which should correspond approximately to the leading and trailing object. They are base on
orbital elements published by amateur observers Marco Langbroek and Cees Bassa.
We will update the display to show all the objects once they are cataloged
and published by Space-Track. However, the display should give observers who want to get an early look at the satellites while they
are still bunched together at least a rough idea of when to start looking. Several observers
have already reported seeing this "string of pearls"
