Observed another very fine display of the Starlink-5 "fleet" during some 20
minutes between 20:01-20:20 UT. This time they attained magnitude +1.5.

The view has something SciFi to it: like the Alien fleet arrives in Earth
Orbit... ;-)

In my stacked image:


...it is well visible that the trails get fainter the more north they are
located in the sky (image looks due west).

Two satellites, Starlink-1274 and Starlink-1309, briefly flared close to Pollux,
to about mag 0. Individual images here:
