    With Kevin F's heads-up, I saw the two r/b's (11574 + 10962) easily, even
    naked eye for a while in poor conditions. When I returned to 12x60s in the
    low SE, I noticed they were joined by 22784, a Meteor r/b, in a neat little
    obtuse triangle, like NOSS triplets used to be, until 22784 was left behind
    by the faster pair. Cool!
    
    Also saw 26186 (as an UNID), and 24938 (predicted) low fast debris from
    CBERS-1 r/b and SL-12 r/b respectively.
