    Last night USA 186 (05-042A, 28888) caught up to and
    passed another object going the same direction.  With
    my binoculars I could not see any separation between
    them at the moment they passed.  I don't have the data
    and don't know what the other object was, but this
    occurred on the first pass, with both of them low in
    our northeast around 3:07-08 UTC.  We were at BCRC.
