52.6963N 1.2456E  (Horsford, Norfolk, England, UK)

W to SW (before they winked out) very bright ISS pass, followed just a couple of minutes later by ATV-5 on the same track.  

At the same time briefly, to the S of the Summer Triangle, 3 x unidentified satellites in a close, loose triangle of their own were rising from the SSW.  I only got to see them briefly before they winked out.  They appeared to be moving slightly slower than ISS but were not much less bright than Altair, which they were close to.  

Any ideas people?  Heavens-above doesn't appear to offer any suggestions.


Thank you & kind regards
