Starlink-satelliitteja - 22.3.2023 at 03.22 Pudasjärvi Observation number 113622

Visibility III / V

To the northeast of the observation point, a string of lights resembling a long straight string of pearls could be seen, starting at a height of about 40 degrees and ending invisible below the horizon. There were perhaps a hundred individual lights in the line of lights. The string of lights descended at an angle of approx. 45 degrees from the north diagonally to the northeast, disappearing below the viewing area. The string of light descended in a straight line, disappearing below the field of vision. The phenomenon I saw lasted approximately 10-20 seconds. The brightness of the points of light was pretty constant all the time and its intensity corresponded to a bright star. I didn't get a photo of the phenomenon.
