Had heard about this - a whole line of bright satellites passing across the night sky,and seen a couple of photos of 6 or 7 of them in a row.

Well, last night I actually got to see it, and I have to say it was an amazing sight. I first noticed the line of them coming above the tree line to the west, moving quite fast, and with the wide open skies here in Somerset, I was able to watch as it formed a complete arc of, fairly evenly spaced, bright dots disappearing behind the tree line to the east. Not just 6 or 7, there must have been 100 or more!

If you haven't seen it and you get the chance (rain clouds permitting) it's well worth a look.
