"Satellite constellations could severely affect up to half of all exposures from certain observatories." (https://www.inverse.com/science/elon-musks-starlink-is-having-a-pernicious-effect-on-astronomy)

"There are only 172 stars in the whole sky exceeding the expected brightness of SpaceX Starlink satellites. Higher altitude LEO satellites (e.g. over 1000 km-altitude) will be visible all the night reaching approximately the 8th magnitude."

This is alarming to say the least.

How can individuals contribute towards pressuring companies to shun these plans?
