A Dutch astronomer captured video footage showing a string of roughly 60 Starlink satellites.

The video shows the "train" of satellites speeding in a straight line as they orbit around the earth.

The satellites were launched Thursday evening by SpaceX, Elon Musk's rocket company.

A stunning video shot by a Dutch astronomer captured a string of roughly 60 Starlink satellites zooming across the night sky, one day after they were launched into orbit.

The astronomer, Marco Langbroek, wrote in a blog post that he had calculated the search orbit himself to find out when they would pass by, and "stood ready" with his camera.

An amateur astronomer called Victor Buso from Argentina was snapping pictures of the cosmos with a new camera and telescope.

The subject of his images was a distant galaxy called NGC 613 about 80 million light-years from Earth.

The images the astronomer snapped showed something that is very rare and a first for any astronomer.

Buso was able to capture images of the distant galaxy before and after a star exploded.

The images show the before and after of the supernova “shock breakout.” A shock breakout is the supersonic pressure wave from the exploding core of the star as it hits and heats gas on the surface of the star to a very high temperature.

That rapid heating causes the start to emit light and brighten rapidly.

Astronomer aims to ease the pain around data analytics.

Collecting data is just part of the operation.

After the data has been collected, it needs to be assembled and organized and sometimes that’s the most time-consuming part of the process.

Astronomer says its solution helps with this process, freeing up engineering resources to actually analyze the data.

The Cincinnati-based company has been around since 2015 and recently announced it raised $3.5M in capital led by Wireframe Ventures in San Francisco and CincyTech in Cincinnati.

Other investors include Frontline Ventures (UK), Grand Ventures, Drummond Road, Core Network, M25 Group, with debt financing participation from Silicon Valley Bank.

You re spending thousands or millions on products – a CRM system, a field operations app, a system to keep your life-like humanoid androids from killing park guests in your Wild West-themed adventure park – and none of these systems talk to each other, especially the ones that keep your robots from falling in love with the guests.

Cincinnati-based Astronomer has some ideas.

The founding team, Ry Walker and Tim Brunk, have created a system to take disparate data sets and integrate them into an actionable body of information.

For example, you can use Astronomer to track actions of the wholesome country girl Android as she slowly begins to remember all the horrible things that were done to her over time and cross-reference the customers who were kind to her.

By integrating all of an organization s data, Astronomer not only powers business intelligence and marketing initiatives, but we can also automate event-triggered systems and optimize huge fleets of machinery, said Walker.

We are completely built on open source technology, which gives the decision-makers more insight and control.

If it has inhabitants, it's a good bet they all "live long and prosper."

The real-life planet Vulcan, once home to "Star Trek's" Spock (made famous by Leonard Nimoy), has been found, thanks to scientists who've discovered an exoplanet just 16 light-years from Earth.

The planet is associated with the real-life star 40 Eridani A, which has been found to be host to one planet.

It is roughly twice the size of Earth (earning it the moniker of a "Super Earth) and orbits its star every 42 days, said astronomer Jian Ge, who led the study.

“Vulcan was connected to 40 Eridani A in the publications 'Star Trek 2' by James Blish (Bantam, 1968) and 'Star Trek Maps' by Jeff Maynard (Bantam, 1980),” explained astronomer George Henry in the statement.

Given the fact 40 Eridani A is slightly cooler and less massive than our Sun and has a 10.1-year magnetic cycle (compared to 11.6 for our Sun), it could be an "ideal host star" for an advanced civilization, astronomer Matthew Muterspaugh noted.

India's first moon-landing attempt appears to have ended in failure.

The Chandrayaan-2 mission's Vikram lander was descending toward the moon when it suddenly went off trajectory just 1.3 miles above the lunar surface.

Moments later, mission control lost communication with Vikram.

An astronomer said data from a radio telescope on Earth indicated the lunar lander may have crashed.

India's moon-bound spacecraft may have crashed into the lunar surface during its descent on Friday, an astronomer said.

Called Vikram, the robot is part of a larger $140 million mission called Chandrayaan-2.

the Astronomer Marco Langbroek figured out where and when Starlink satellites would pass, and caught the seda satellite the train with his camera.

a few days ago, sent Elon Musks companies Space X up the first rocket with the satellites for the upcoming internet Starlink.

At the time of departure from Cape Canaveral, Florida had the rocket with 60 satellites.

They are placed at approximately 500 km altitude, from where they later will be able to offer access to the internet.

For Starlink will come in time, however, require at least 800 satellites, and thus further over the ten rocket launches.

If you had hopes of finding E.T.

anytime soon, one astronomer is about to burst your bubble.

Speaking at the International Astronautical Congress in Washington last month, Massachusetts Institute of Technology astronomer Sara Seager said it's going to be a long slog before we find an advanced civilization in space.

"It's probably something that's going to be a slow discovery, not like the little green humanoids arriving here on Earth scaring everybody," Seager said in comments obtained by Space.com.

"It's probably going to take a long time."
