Did I just see Starlink Satellites?

I just counted a chain of 35 satellites moving at a stately pace from southwest to north east. May have been more before I looked up. Is that the starlink sats? Amazing to see but annoying if they're zipping through your long exposure.

Saw them here in Melbourne too Mark, never seen it before, quite scary seeing that many in such a structured passing. If they all burn up in earth's atmosphere at the same time at the end of their life, it will be a mighty show to see!

It won't be too bad once they spread out into their final orbits..... I hope 😉
