I just had a very nice pass of Starlink 6 and the Falcon 9 r/b passing in a blue
twilight sky, as seen from Leiden, the Netherlands. Maybe half a minute early on
my elset.

Easy naked eye object (mag +1 to 0). In binoculars, multiple objects: the bright
Falcon stage, an elongated bright objects (cluster of satellites probably), and
at laest 4 fainter flashing objects surrounding them. Very nice view!

In the two minutes before the pass, false alarms by several older Starlinks.
