You can see multiple satellites on almost any night of the week

This site will tell you when and where to look.

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

Don't mention it. You'll need to be quick though. They shoot across the sky at a fair lick.

I did wonder what on earth they were when I first saw them. I've seen plenty of satellites before and watched the ISS zoom across the night sky a few times, but it was very odd to see a perfectly straight line of "stars" equally spaced moving across the sky. :D I remembered reading about the Starlink Satellites upsetting astromoners a few weeks ago so hit Google.

The problem with those things is, they could totally screw up ground-based astro-photography and radio astronomy.

After several consultations between astronomers and Elon Musk, at least one of the latest batch of satellites will be darker, in the hope that it will not be so easily seen. If that one works out, all future satellites from SpaceX will be similarly coloured. Thing is, a few other companies are also going to be sending up thousands of satellites in the near future. Whether they'll also be darkened or not, we will just have to wait and see.
