    The Terra( 25994 ) and alos ( 28931 ) satellites will be near each other, on July 2. This is in
    term's of UTC. So for us in north america, that means the evening of July 1. 
    For my location, they are predicted to less then 4 degrees apart, around 2:27 UTC ( July 2 ) when
    they reach a altitude of 43 degrees. They are predicted to be, in the 4th magnitude range, are so
    I can see them with the eye. 
    So check you location, to see what you can expect to see.
