A guy of the french magazine Ciel & Espace sent me
a message saying that he saw a group of 5 to 8 (!) satellites
crossing the sky of Paris on december 14 1996 between
21:45 and 22:00 UTC 
Coordinates of PARIS: 48d52m NORTH 2d20m EAST
He says that the magnitude of each one was 2 to 3.
And they passed near the zenith.
I'm sorry for the lack of precision but I'm sure that
guy did not confuse. It was satellites.
Any idea?

My pleasure, avec plaisir,  Alphonse
