Thought I was seeing stars - but I wasn't!

I went out last night to put something in the bin, looked up and saw not one, not two but about THIRTY moving 'stars'. Apparently they are satellites courtesy of Elon Musk - and this was just a few of them.
It was an amazing sight but made me think how our lives - and our universe - is changing.
But is this sort of change good or not? What are your thoughts?

I think I saw that they will be visible again on Tuesday.
I'm cross that I forgot to look last night.

Myself and my son were stood outside watching them, they moved at quite a pace.
It does make you wonder about the amount of stuff flying about up there and how much more can be put into space, will it soon be causing problems like the rubbish collecting/polluting the oceans?

When it’s warmer I’ve often sat out watching satellites and the ISS travelling across the sky it’s awesome.
