SpaceX Starlink satellites appear in photos of Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE)

Concerns have been raised after many of SpaceX’s Starlink satellites have appeared in astronomy photos of Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE). Over 400 Starlink satellites are currently in orbit and SpaceX plans to launch a total of 12,000 satellites for their network. There are many other satellites in orbit but Starlink satellites appear brighter because they orbit closer to Earth than other satellites.
