Starlink - 25.3.2023 at 03.40 - 25.3.2023 at 03.45 Ranua Observation number 113777

Visibility IV / V

A moving "band of stars" in the northwestern sky. In the tape, at least ten "stars" that flew peacefully in the west-east direction. A new "star" appeared as the old one reached the point where it faded from view. The balls moved symmetrically apart at the same speed.

The phenomenon ended when no more balls appeared and the last one had followed the others to the decision point.

When I woke up, the phenomenon was already flying in the sky. I rubbed my eyes for a while and finally woke up my husband to say that he sees the same as me. I had time to watch for approx. 5 minutes in total.

Attached is a photo of where the formation started and where it ended. And the density of "stars" roughly.

An unforgettable igloo night. The aurora borealis was also in the sky at 3:45 at that time
