    I can confirm this: this evening at 19:08 UTC (16 Nov) there was only one 
    object, not two.
    I have video of the pass, and a photograph, both showing only one object (rather 
    faint on the photograph - conditions were not perfect). No second object several 
    minutes before or after this one.
