Struggling to spot any of the old ones tonight, they just don't stand out despite the sky now being dark. The new one really stood out despite the sky not being fully dark.
I don't think you could: too low and too dim.I didn't see the second pass, but there is a report and image showing that the dispersal is already visible.
wtf are you talking about?The Heaven's Above predictions are up for tonight, 60 satellites in a span of just 23 seconds. That's more like it!
For Severn Estuary area: Start time 20h53m53s BST, WSW to ESE, greatest elevation 71° SSW (Cancer/Lynx) That area is devoid of prominent stars, look in the area surrounded by Castor & Pollux (the twin stars of Gemini), Regulus (the brightest star in the Sickle of Leo), and Dubhe (the brightest star in The Plough).
The further east or south you are, the closer the track gets to Polaris (the Pole Star). For the Suffolk coast the track passes between Gemini and Auriga, and close to the Pointers between The Plough and Polaris.

His own bit of the sky ?absolutely. God knows what he is looking at.
wrong. he's definitely wrong about the Suffolk coast.His own bit of the sky ?
Compared to the stars / planets these things are very close to us, because of this where they appear in the sky will vary a lot more than anything else depending which bit of the UK you viewing from, therefore I am guessing BH, mihaid and HM all correct on this occasion
