Musk loves his Starlink sat constellation – but astroboffins are less than dazzled by them

Reflective?

One has to ask why the satellites are so reflective? Other than the solar panels surely they can be given some less irritating finish? I believe Musk has already said the next ones won't be so bad. So why were these ones made reflective? Did he WANT them to stand out like a searchlight? Or did they just not think about other people?
