I observed two passes of the Starlink-7 'train' last night, and video-ed one:

The very first object visible on the video should be Starlink-1436 'VISORSAT".

This video is from the first pass, a low elevation pass (25 deg max) at 21:16 UT
(June 5) in evening twilight (23:16 CEST).

The satellites were mostly faint.

The second pass at 22:49 UT was a zenith pass observed by binoculars.

One of the objects was very bright and easy naked eye at mag +1 to 0: the rest
was faint, mag +4 tot +5 and not visible to me by naked eye as the sky
background was a bit bright with the full moon and all.
