Starlink Satellites
If the skies are clear, there’s a train of satellites that will be visible to the human eye over the next few nights. Tonight’s are supposed to be visible for six minutes 2158hrs (+/- 10 mins). A few around here seen them last night, I'll be giving it a try later. For the insomniacs, they come round again 0330 and 0502hrs too 😉  Link is here

Sorry Smuggers, for Cyprus it says, "the latest Starlink isn't very visible at your location during the next 5 days. This might change in the coming weeks, due to changing orbits."


Not to mention these. https://earthsky.org/astronomy-essentials/everything-you-need-to-know-lyrid-meteor-shower  :thumbsup:
