    subject: IGS R2 sat and its 2 fairings
    Observed last night (visually) IGS R2(30586 2007-005-A) flying in an 
    impressive wide tandem with one of its fairings IGS R2 Shroud1
    (30590 2007-005-E), although the fairing should have orbiting
    a 100 km lower, it was not really obvious.
    Some minutes later the duo was followed by the second fairing
    IGS R2 Shroud2 (30591 2007-005-F)
    Shroud 1 was tumbling clearly, comparable with the period
    we know from the well-known IGS-3 fairings, visible quite
    a few summers from here. Shroud 2 was less obvious tumbling,
    but it flared in the SW during the pass.
