Hi all,

I got the report of a flare from a Starlink on the 23rd June 2020. Trails
of two satellites are recorded in an all-sky image taken by Jaime Izquierdo
from M30 Observatory, in Madrid. Camera is used for a light pollution
research project ( ) so exposures are
long (25 seconds, one image every 2 minutes). And in this case the timing
was a bit off (+3 minutes, checked afterwards). Actual time of observation
was 03:36 UT, and trails observed fit very well with Starlink-65 (44276)
and Starlink-21 (44245), launched on May 24, 2019 and happened to be around
the 6000th revolution around the globe.

I have posted it in case someone may find it interesting, especially for
modelling these flares. The two stars between the two trails are Zeta and
Epsilon Cygni.
