Bunda cliffs nightscape

On the way back from the Ningaloo eclipse, we camped at the Bunda cliffs and I set up my little Canon compact to take 30sec exposures all night.
There was a time, a couple of hours before dawn, when satellites of a particular constellation, probably Starlink, were producing a lot of bright reflections.
The attached stack is using the last couple of hours of frames before dawn.

Nice job there Stefan. I thought you'd captured an unusual meteor shower but those satellites have put on a show for you. It's always good to carry a capable compact camera away with you for moments like this. Nice sunrise and star trails too!

Thanks Michael,
I think this satellite show repeats every morning when the sun angle is right. The reflecting objects seem to be moving on a grid pattern. If the grid is global, then the right geometry should happen every morning, for a while at least, for a given location.
