This morning at 07:22 (UTC + 1), when passing Arcturus, both satellites have
brightened from invisibility to -1 magnitude (they were so close together
that I thought if it was a plane, or what would that be, until I consulted
in HeavenSat). However, the flare, since I had knowledge of it, just have
lasted about 6-7 seconds, which did not leave me time to photograph it.
My approximate coordinates are 36.8389ºN, 2.4497W, Almería (Spain)
