    That's the most amazing video of satellites of the year.  Why has noone else 
    thought to do that?
    You can see part of hydra on the right 1/4 of the image (at the start) and 
    sextans in the middle.  Not much else recognizable.  The stars in the upper 
    left corner are technically in leo but not part of what I think of as leo. 
    The asterism stars of leo are outside the field of view.  The satellites are 
    all at about -8 degrees declination.
    Some people have already reposted the video on youtube so if you read this 
    long after spaceweather has canned it you can see them here:
