Astronomers became alarmed about the effect the Starlink satellites would have after the launch

SpaceX has responded to those concerns first with an experimental “DarkSat” launched in January, 

whose surfaces were darkened to reduce the amount of sunlight they reflected.

SpaceX followed that up with a “VisorSat” on the most recent Starlink launch June 3

 a satellite that has sunshades intended to block sunlight from reaching reflective surfaces on the satellite

While the effectiveness of VisorSat will have to be measured in the weeks ahead
