     Last time it was a surprise double flare , this time a traveling pair
    of sats flaring at the same time , and exactly as they reached
    the brim of the bowl of the Big Dipper ! Wow , was that cool & also sheer luck .

     Traveling one in front of the other , leading sat was brighter
    by 1 mag , even when flaring . It Flared to ~ mag +2 perhaps .
    
     Heavensabove show them as being around a 1 KM separation and I
    saw almost a full degree of separation (estimated) . HA's timing saidthey were 6 seconds apart but I think it was more like 3-4 sec's max .
