    Hi all,
    
    I just observe Astro and Nextsat for the first time at 02:06:38 UT May 19.
    
    The leading object was brighter and separation was about 1/4 second in time.
    The area of the sky I was watching was cloudy and cleared about 20 seconds
    prior to the observation. I followed the pair with my 20x80 for about ten
    seconds before they disappeared in clouds again.
    
    Thanks for the heads-up Ted !

    Objet : OE Astro and Nextsat re-mated?
    
    The epoch 07138.6753 elements of both 07006A / 30772 and 07006C / 30774 are
    identical, which suggests they may have re-mated. 
    
    I will have a look tonight. First pass is in one hour.
