For those that maybe interested in what happens above their heads there will be (according to Heavens Above website ) two main drifts of Starlink satelites tonight. One shortly after sunset starting about 8.57pm. reaching 25-30 deg. above horizon in the N.E. (nearly 20 of them) but there will still be a lot of brightness in the sky due to the set sun. Another group (about 40) just after 10.00pm rising in the W.N.W ascending to about 80 deg.in the S.W. (nearly over head) and disappearing S. The whole forty of them will take about 10. min from start to finish. This of course is subject to a clear sky. Good spotting everyone.
