    Hello everybody,
          While observing the eastern half of the sky at UT 0924 I observed
    1975-072B heading north about 45 degrees above the horizon. After it
    faded below x1 visibility I noticed 2002-049A headed north on a similar
    trajectory. I picked up my 10x50 binoculars to follow 2002-049A and saw
    that it was rapidly gaining on 1975-072B. BANG! A direct hit! There was
    no apparent separation between the two satellites when 2002-049A
    overtook 1975-072B. Fortunately there was some difference in altitude
    : ).
