Observed the NOSS duo tonight at 05:47 UT June 9 (6 mins. after Jim Varney's
observation?).

Couple of points.

My observation from last night alluding to three objects was in error.  The
object preceding the pair by a couple of minutes was probably an unrelated
object as pointed out by Mike McCants (thanks Mike).  It was not evident
in tonight's observation even though I looked specifically for it.

The glinting as observed by Jim was not seen.  In fact my pass had a poor
phase angle (101 degrees as indicated by Quicksat), and the objects were
dim in my 10x50 binoculars.

The objects did appear slightly closer tonight than last night.  I read
Rainer's post after my observation and indeed they do seem to be closing
in.  (my unawareness of this led me to hastily guess that I had seen three
objects last night!)

By the way...is there a consensus, which one is the A object and which one
is the C object?
