    >>Hello from Finland!
    >>There is now several observations (including mine) of two very slowly
    >>moving flaring objects low on the Eastern sky from Finland. They are
    >>separated by few degrees and very bright (negative magnitude) staying
    >>bright for at least 15 seconds then fading quite rapidly. The
    >>brighness is something like Iridiums, but they stay longer bright and
    >>fade faster, the both objects fading at the same moment.
    >>They have been seen on August 11 at 20:45 UT (+/- 5 min) from
    >>Jyvaskyla (25.5E, 62.3N) and Muurame (25.6E, 62.1N) locations
    >>separated by 35 km N-S and August 16 at 22:40 UT (+/- 15 min) from
    >>Raasepori (23.7E, 60.0N).
    >>Any other observations or identification of the objects?
