CPS SatCons 101 Training Module 6

The presence of large numbers of satellites in orbit around the Earth has effects beyond their impacts to astronomy. This module discusses the cultural significance of night skies and how the presence of many bright, moving objects in our skies presents a challenge to communities that access the night sky for recreation, tourism and/or religious practice. It raises concerns about the lack of consultation with these groups in making decisions that affect the appearance of the night sky, and it presents emerging research results suggesting that satellites may even impact the activities of some wildlife species.
