NGC 896 - Jumping fish acquired with Baader highspeed SHO filters.

Last night, while imaging, I witness the passing of the star link satellite line right over my head.
This sighting was very troubling to me, as the satellite are low, shinning, intrusive, unatural, a real danger to all of us. The last frontier, space, is now polluted.

The days of astrophotography are numbered. I saw a chain of satellites of perhaps 100, yet they say that 40,000 to 50,000 satellites will be deployed within the next 2 years. Science and technology is good when it make sense, but the starlink satellite system is crazy and sickening.

The night you see it, you will understand how crazy this is.
