Just saw countless lights moving across the sky, all single file, no blinking lights... I am in Central California, slightly South of Yosemite National Park.

The last SpaceX Starlink flight was V1.0 L27 mission. The mission launched from SLC-40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station on 9 May at 02:42 EDT / 06:42 UTC
Thank you. I figured out that what I saw was the last 60 they launched in their last mission, the one you mentioned.

What do you mean by countless? As in, if there were 10 million they would form a dotted line all across the sky. So, maybe, 20? 50? approximately?

Cat :)
Thank you. I saw the 60 star link satellites that SpaceX launched in their last mission. (It seemed like there were countless lights because I did not see the beginning of the line of lights, so I did not know how many more had already passed overhead. ....Definitely not 10 million. lol)
