    Wow!! Another 4000 objects in orbit around the earth?

    Maybe we don't need to worry about meteors hitting the earth. All that stuff up there might just deflect meteors elsewhere.

    The Forbes article I read said their plan was 12,000 satellites minimum and up to 40,000, possibly. Astronomers are complaining because they are obstructing their views of the sky, since they are apparently the brightest thing in the sky. And other satellite operators are concerned about collisions.

    Yeah, space is a landfill these days. Worse yet, more than half of everything up there is junk, trash, and unused hardware just floating around making it tough to fly new stuff. Governments really failed to address this in the early days, and it's at a point where the job is too big to deal with.

    I just happened to take the puppy out and looked up to see that go over the house. My crappy iPhone 8 picture.

    A former coworker told me he saw an orange glowing orb over his house years ago and then five minutes later six F-16 showed up over Sperry and the orb moved away off to the east. This guy is a 100% believer in extraterrestrial life.

    Makes sense. As vast and endless as the universe is, it's logical to believe we're not alone.

    I about lost my mind the first time I saw these, about a year ago I think? Practically foaming at the mouth! I was on the phone with my brother in Tuttle (I live in Edmond), we were both outside and saw them about the same time. I think I counted 30 in a row. My wife said she’s never seen me like that, lol.
