    In a few hours time, 2 satellites will pass by and be close to each other.
    They are 17242 and 18312.
    The time of the pass is around 3:01 utc ( June 29 ) 
    The sky will be very bright at the time, with the sun only roughly 10 degress below the horizon.
    You will need a pair of binoculars to see them.
    Just incase people where interested, in this kind of thing.
