    I got the following email today
    At just about 0:04 to 0:05 on July 3 EDT, I was looking through my 10x50 binos in an area about 5 degree below and to the left of Arcturus.  I witnessed 4 satellites flying in formation.  The front 3 in a V formation and the last one just behind and to the right in my FOV.  They were more greyish then stars are, and seemed extended instead of pin points like stars.  They were moving pretty quickly through the FOV, and within 4 or 5 seconds they disappeared behind my neighbors 2 story house.  They were traveling sort of from west to south (right to left in the FOV).
    There were definitely 4 in formation, traveling the same line, same speed (fast) and same brightness...all within a 3-4 degree area.
    Sounded like noss to me, with a extra non noss satellite just happening passing by at the time, but I get no noss in that area at the time reported. I also so far don't see anything that matches what he observed.
    His location is
    48.4362N and 89.1805W
