Observed the Starlink-7 'train' from yesterday's launch from Leiden, the
Netherlands, through clearings in the cloud cover, near 22:44 UT (4 Jun). This
was a zenith pass, and they were faint: visible in binoculars, but not naked eye.

Video had, alas, a field of clouds in the FOV as they were passing.

So it really is becoming a pattern: high elevation passes are not good for the
brightnes sof these satelllites, passes lower in the south are more favourable.
Counter-intuitive, but true for these flat satellites!
