    At around 00:24 UTC ( Sept 18 ) I was able to see 4 satellite flying in formation, from today's soyuz launchm using my wide feild setup. They passed approx 28 degrees above my horizon, under a good lighting conditions.
    
    3 of them are faint, ie 35866, 35868 and 35869. They appeared to be bswteen 8th to 9th magnitude, for this pass.
    
    35865, are object A was easy to see, brighter then mag 8 I would say.
    
    That was nice, seeing 4 satellites flying in formatiom. Catch them while you can.
