Given our longitude only the last of these is technically feasible here, though It occurs on a weekday at 4:44 pm local time ie in business hours. So few will have the chance at it.

Sorry to hear that. 2019 wasn't a very good year for this illumination...
The event lasts around three hours, so maybe there is enough window of time for some...

There is a second "X" that is also visible at the same time as the one based around Werner. It is also very close to Werner. Same size, though its shape is a little more narrow and long. See if you can spot it.
