Wow! Marco's images whetted my appetite and the satellites came through tonight. Yes, a little early, but even in a frigid, partly cirrus sky that only showed a few stars, about 10 bright dots were seen. Each was probably +1 mag (better than Altair, but dimmer than Vega) and each was probably actually 3 or more sats each. This on a low pass 35 deg up in SW.

As someone said, all's well that ends well on an otherwise slightly bummer day with weather ruining transit.
