    Mike Fawcett described a pair of unusual unknowns that he observed last
    night:

    This almost certainly was the NOSS doublet launched last summer:
    
    1 26905U 01040A   02088.03479715  .00000120  00000-0  20895-3 0    04
    2 26905  63.4360 146.6764 0124000 178.5284 181.4716 13.40437759    03
    
    1 26907U 01040C   02088.03471524  .00000120  00000-0  20950-3 0    08
    2 26907  63.4290 146.4521 0121000 179.2435 180.7565 13.40408174    02
    
    On rare occasions, NOSS have been known to flare brilliantly, as in this
    1996 report by Craig Cholar:
    
    http://satobs.org/seesat/Sep-1996/0056.html
    
    "Imagine seeing Venus in formation with itself separated by less than 7
    degrees, with Saturn trailing along;  that's what the spectacle looked
    like."
