Large LEO Satellite Constellations

Constellation List - Large (but not Enormous) LEO (50-1000 satellites)

I consider constellations with N > 50 planned satellites as 'Large' and N > 1000 as 'Enormous'.

Large (expected 50 < N < 1000 ) existing and planned LEO constellations are listed here. The `enormous' constellations are listed here

The tables show:
