     I just happened to look out my window and noted 2 satellites, one following the
    other by about 2-3 seconds. Both were going north to south. The 1st one
    was about mag 3 and faded then brightened back to mag 3 for a second.
     About 2-3 seconds later the 2nd satellite came at about the same magnitude
    but faded and was no visible after that.
     I looked at a satellite page but it listed satellite till only 0000 UT so
    I could not find out which ones they were.
     Any help would be appreciated.
    Observed them at 0147 UT from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada  
    at Lat=  N44d 39m 
       Long= W63d 36m
    Clear skies
