A String of Pearls (not the Glenn Miller one)

A spectacular view (and video) of SpaceX's 60  Starlink satellites tracking across the sky. It triggered a lot of UFO reports in NW Europe

I wish I knew how to calculate if or when this sight would be visible here, but I guess they would be well on their way to dispersing now.
