Skywatchers have been gazing skywards as Elon Musk’s satellites moved across the sky.

The Space X programme is seeing 12,000 satellites flown into space to help remote locations have improved Internet connections.

Clear skies mean it’s excellent star-spotting conditions and many Prestonians have been reporting seeing the slow-moving line of lights which are the Star Link satellites.

Sicario Visuals, based in Much Hoole, South Ribble, saw the satellites and managed to capture some video footage of them on the move.

According to findstarlink.com, the Starlink satellites will be flying over the UK until Friday April 24.
