On a clear moonless night

When my sprogs were still young, we'd sit watching satellites (& the odd shooting star) whizz overhead every couple of mins playing 'first to see ten', great fun.

Now with literally thousands of starlink boxes about to be cluttering up the sky the game will totally lose appeal to youngsters, look up and see a continuous stream of boxes popping in and out of view from dusk to dawn.
