I just noticed that the starlink Altitude on the link you provided is dropping. In the 20 minutes I observed, it went from 276 miles to 273 miles.
At that rate, it wont be above us for long before it comes burning thru our atmosphere. Am I missing something or will the satelite have other means
to regain its altitude?

Here's a lapse view more like what a ground observer would see
Probably sparked a few UFO reports too
This is exactly what my wife and I saw in the sky Saturday night here in southwest Ohio. I had no idea they were being released or what they would
look like. I spent a couple hours trying to piece it together in my head and figure out possible explanations. Wasn’t the ISS, too fast to be any
known aircraft, wasn’t an asteroid/comet.
A good old fashioned google search showed me quite a few others witnessed it and some called it extraterrestrial. But there were enough posts about
Starlink to show its true nature.
Elon Musk has a way of not telling people what’s being launched or released and creating a commotion online. I imagine he does this on purpose.
Either to just mess with people (which I respect and laugh at) or because it’s top secret information that he doesn’t want people knowing about.
