Starlink satellite train

Some members may have seen a string of satellites over South Wales last night at around 9:22 BST.  it was of course the satellite train of Starlink.  It should be clear tonight and there is another opportunity to see it at 9:58 this evening (20th April 2020).  It will last for 6 minutes, the train traveling from west to east.  There is another opportunity tomorrow evening at 10:34 pm and on the 22nd at 9:34pm.  The satellite are controversial as many astronomers feel that they will interfere with observing.  They certainly will interfere with astrophotography, as existing satellites and aircraft do.  It remains to be seen how much of a problem they present.
