In my 1st e-mail of  17 mei 2022 23:09 I wrote:

Just observed a "partner" of USA 327. Now it looks like the other NOSS
generation 3 duets.
Now time to work out other observation details.

When I tried to reconstruct my observation I detected my mistake and
informed this forum:

And then in a hurry I went outside to catch USA 327: Still one satellite.

The pair I saw before have been NOSS 3-6 (P) (38773/12048P) and NOSS 3-6
(A) (38758/12048A).
I also found the cause of my mistake: The date for prediction was set on
May 16.

Is it coincidental that the NOSS-pair this night followed almost exactly
the same track as USA 327 yesterday?
