A bit of a re-assurance, these objects now dimmed from 0 to -1 magnitude towards magnitude 4 (estimate). some bits were brighter. Hopelfully that means the impact on the natural sky remains limited. I do fear that all 12000 of these will be a pest for astrophotography, for sure also for professionals!
I actually missed them untill my son detected them as a faint trail east of Bootes (so culmunating).
