Starlink visibility for NYC?

Assuming that the next round of Starlink satellites are successfully launched
on Saturday at 15:46 UT and using the preliminary TLE for this mission, I have
deduced that a pretty good pass of the satellite train over NYC will take place 
on Saturday evening beginning at roughly 6:41 p.m. EST.  

The "train" will pass from WSW to SSW and will reach a maximum altitude
of about 25-30 degrees above the SW horizon. . . from below Venus . . . 
through Cetus . . . and then down through Eridanus.

Coming just over an hour after sunset, the entire pass should be 
visible . . . with no entry into Earth's shadow.

Could anyone confirm for me if this is all reasonably accurate?
Many thanks!
