Satellite re-entry can be observed from the US state of California, among other places. However, three more satellites rose again into orbit.

The burning satellite is the Starlink V2 Mini – a small version of the next generation of Starlink satellites. These have a better data transfer rate and better antennas.

It is still not clear how many V2 Mini still have to be dropped from the sky.
