    There's a pretty good report of what appears to be a very 
    good match with the NOSS 2-1 triplets as seen by accident by
    a sky-watcher who thought they must be satellites but was 
    not aware that there are some that travel in formation:

    I looked up the site -- Barnstaple, Devon -- on Heavens-Above 
    and found that it's currently UTC +1 (England Summer Time).  
    NOSS 2-2 did a very good pass 50 minutes earlier.  NOSS 8 did 
    a zenith pass just five to ten minutes before NOSS 2-1 but 
    of course usually are significantly fainter and are much more
    separated from one another.
    I've sent a message to the site's director to point out the 
    probable identification.
    Hoping for clear skies here for at least one or two evenings 
    this week!
