Launch is now indeed slated for 22 April 19:37 UT, from SLC-39A in Florida.

Here is my orbit estimate for the first revolution:

STARLINK 6
1 70000U 20999A   20113.81736111  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    04
2 70000 053.0000 042.4218 0117009 047.3726 323.7776 15.95113134    03

Europe has an evening twilight pass 20 minutes after launch. As the satellites
will have barely deployed, they might not be well resolvable individually.

Allow for 1-2 minutes time uncertainty in the above elset.
