I just observed four satellites lined up in a perfect row with equal dist=
ances
between neighboring satellites. Brightnesses were also almost the same. T=
hree
of the satellites were of the NOSS 2-3 cluster, the other is (alas)
unidentifiable for me. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Time: March 1st, 18:56:46 UTC
Position: RA 13h50m, Decl 44d00m
My location: 54.456N, 9.622E, 10m ASL

The NOSS satellites moved almost vertically down (~160deg), the fourth
satellite moved a little bit more horizontally (~140deg).

following TiPS, which flashed at >10s intervals, with an irregular light =
curve.
At times, it was invisible in a mounted 20x50 binocular. Only one light s=
pot
was seen.
