    There is a report, "Spectacular Double Flare", on the 
    newsgroup:
    
    sci.astro.satellites.visual-observe
    
    of very bright negative magnitude flares of a pair of 
    satellites that were traveling together.  The writer 
    ruled out Iridium flares and asked for ID.  With the 
    information given, they are a very good match with 
    USA 160 (A) and (C) (26905 and 26907, 01-040A and 
    01-040C), and I hope I get to see such an event myself!
