    DMSP B5D2-8 (23533,95-15A) was flying in "formation" with Fengyun 1-B
    (20788,90-81A), separated by about 3 degrees and at nearly the same range
    (543 and 565 miles, respectively). 20788 was flaring off and on (mag 6 ->
    inv), and although I didn't get a period on it, this was quite a show. Ever
    so slowly, the US sat pulled away.
