    Hi everyone,
    I saw a very interesting pair of satellites red in color moving south
    to north and separated by ~ 5 arc minutes when near the zenith. Mags
    were bright south of the zenith at approx mag 1 but then fading. Time
    was 5:24 p.m. from Duluth, Minn. USA. Each was steady - no flashing -
    however one grew slightly brighter than the other. Does anyone have
    any idea what I saw? H-A doesn't show a listing that matches. Are they
    a NOSS pair or ...?
    Thank you for your help.
