Well at my location, Bruges Belgium, they were quiet easy to see with the
naked eye almost during the whole transit.  Every satellite was visible
with binoculars.  Some had a different color.
Unfortunately my camera failed during filming but I also made a photograph
of the transit with long exposure.

Very spectacular indeed.  Tomorrow another chance although they will
culminate at a lower elevation.
