    Hello:
    
     Last night I saw 2 satellites close together in 7x50 binoculars passing 
    by Epsilon
    Bootis. Just wondering if anyone knows what they were?
    
    Date: July 7/8, 2008
    UT: approx: 0038-0040
    Place: Halifax, Nova Scotia,Canada
    Lat: N44d 39'
    Long: W63d 36'
    
    One satellite was about 3rd mag the other maybe near 4th. They were less 
    than 1 degree
    apart just a bit more than Alpha and Beta Sagitta and moving 
    simultaneously together NNW-SSW.
