    Just got done watching a nice Iridium 7 flare.  I located it about a  
    minute before the flare and noticed an equally bright satellite dogging it  
    about 1.5 degree behind (in front?) of it.  They both flared to the  
    Heavens Above predicted - 4 magnitude, but Heavens Above did not have the  
    other satellite predicted in the listing.  Anyone know what that satellite  
    is?  Any idea if they will stay in this formation for very long?
