The 'Visorsat' launched on the L1.7 mission is currently visible as a 
pre-dawn object in the southern hemisphere.

I noticed today that it has not been included in the first set of 
Starlinks from that launch being boosted to the 550km orbit is left at 
380km for the moment, which makes me wonder if it is being tested in the 
operational, Earth-facing mode and hence less bright, by an amount we 
don't know yet. Has anyone in the southern hemisphere had a look at it?
