Steve,

Thanks for pointing out this informative posting. SpaceX is being very
responsible. Hopefully the Sun shade will work and it will satisfy the
astronomers.

If the low-albedo bird is called DarkSat, should we call this one ShadeSat?
In any case, new equations will be needed to predict Starlink magnitudes.
