Between 20:25 and 20:45 UT I saw a file of dozens of very bright Starlink
satellites from the 2020-019 launch pass by, very impressive, in a long
continuing line that went on for some 20 minutes. At any time there were at
least 7 or 8 of them visible in the sky.

Very bright: almost all magnitude +0.5, only 1 or two fainter (mag +2).

Maximum elevation in order of 60 degrees.
