Starlink V1.0-L26 Observations (Falcon, CO USA)

Launched on 15 May 2021, 2254 UT.

Observed using binoculars around 3:59UT, 16 May 2021.

14 degree elevation pass in the north.  This may have been
revolution three after launch.

The train width was about 0.3 degrees (compared to moon).

Satellite brightness roughly 5.

I did not stopwatch time the arrival but it seemed to be 30-60
seconds late using Dr. Kelso's prelaunch elset.  It is great to
have those since it allows me to see early passes.

I did not see either of the rideshare satellites.
