    Hi!Whilst observing comet Lulin from Torquay UK (50.48N 3.53W) I was surprised by two satellites just visible in my 10x50s.
    The
    first rose in the south around 5.45 local time and passed just to the
    left of Zubenalgenubi in Libra, whilst the second was descending from
    SSE to SSW and flared near the horizon around 5.51 local time.
    Ha ha-I know these observations are appallingly vague but anyone got any idea what these two satellites were?
    Got a nice view of Lulin by the way!
    Yours vaguely,
                      Marcus Clark
