    I observed 4 satellites, from the recent china launch.
    Observed 36413 and 36418 passed by seperated by few degrees from each other, but I could see them both in the feild of view, as they passed, so a nice view.
    Next one, I beleive was 36414, followed later by 36415.
    I don't remember seeing 36417, will check the video.
    The satellites were mag 8 are brighter, and easy to see.
