Two related satellite bodies observed
-------------------------------------

Note that after interfering my deep VS observation,
I did not look after more glaring bodies. Position
trespassed is very accurate, within some arcseconds.
Both had the very same path. Timing accuracy is 10 seconds.

Position:  RA  16 00 04  (Epoch 2000)
          dec +33 11 15

(roughly in the W, 40 degrees above horizon)

Observer location: +60 14 29 N
                    24 48 58 E
                   +35m

Time (UT): 19.00.35 magnitude 12 object
           19.00.45 magnitude  8 object

Both moved horizontally (N -> S) fast,
across my 6' field in about 0.4 seconds.
