Starlink "train"

As there is not much traffic in the lower atmopshere, how about looking a bit higher?

Here in the UK tonight (21 April 2020) at 21:00 and 22:30 there will be a visible pass of one of the Starlink “trains”. Maybe up to 40 satellites.

For those in other countries you can find details here https://www.satflare.com/track.asp?q=StarLink5#TOP

Use the tabs at the top of the page as there are currently 3 trains which pass over different countries. Another 60 are being launched tomorrow.

SpaceX plan to launch a Falcon 9 rocket from Florida on 22 April 2020 at 19:37 UTC (20:37 BST). This will be visible over England about 22 to 25 minutes later, travelling West to East-South-East.

The following orbit (110? minutes later) will see the deployed Starlink satellites in a very closely packed string.
