My apologies guys, it was sort of a joke. I realize there's only one that has a dark coating, I hope to observe it and see how much darker it is if possible.
I tend to have a cutting sense of humor when I get up late at 5:30 in the morning and run outside in my pajamas in 30 F weather and don't see anything!

I took a video of a passage of Starlink-1 last week, their 
brightnesses seem to be relatively uniform:

I will try to take another one of Starlink-2 soon (when the weather 
is fine...), to see how the #1130 is different
