Yes it is. More info in this video.


On one of the launches, after a few days, I counted 54 of the satellites in a row one early morning just before sunrise. It is my understanding there are hundreds and hundreds of them.

It will be interesting how this effects current business models for internet availability. Got a feeling, if it works a stated and is priced correctly, there will be a blood bath of defunct providers.

Here's what they look like in the night sky. If you can get the Washington Post (it may be behind a paywall) this is a great article and fantastic photo. Well worth trying to get a look at. If you can't get it, the second link should be available to everyone.

The last link shows how to see them where you are located.

This service is great for those that have no internet service otherwise. For everyone else it's way overpriced.

I think I posted this before but we happened to catch a launch on our vacation last September. We didn't know what it was at the time until we saw the news the next day. I took this pic just south of Ocean City, MD of one of their launches in Florida.
