Starlink stream

I went outside at about 18:30 to check on the progress of the appoaching cloud and noticed something that didn't look right. Rising in the NW, I watched at least a dozen of what I assume to be Starlink satellites rising up through Delphinus before disapearing at an altitude of about 40 deg. I don't know how many others had passed through before I when out.
