    Depending on where you are, will determine if you get to see them, and how bright they be, and how
    far apart they appear.
    
    Leo gets a nice pass through Cassiopeia at around 23:18 UTC (Aug 19 ). 
    Better have a decent sky, as light pollution from the city makes them harder to see, mainly the
    leading satellite ( Cosmos 2406 )
