    I know this type of observation has been dismissed before as planes, but I
    again saw a pair of dim objects (separated by about 0.5-1 degree and
    perfectly in line) last night with 12x60 binoculars while waiting for NOSS
    2-2 E (21908). I first saw it very near the expected position for 21908,
    then got my wits and got a good point in Auriga, so say:
    3h25m +20 at 1:17:08.19 UT
    5h56m +54.5 at 1:17:28.71 UT
    The objects were oriented 45 deg and traveled in (my guess) about a 65
    degree orbital inclination. Dim, about +6.5 or +7, and obviously quite fast.
    Any ideas? If it was planes again, what list do I need to be on for
    predictions - this was COOL :O)
    Other reports (of normal objects) later after reduction.
