I observed both satellites (Tsikada, 97052A and Faisat-2V, 97052B) on
97-09-26 at 19:33:15 UT when they passed gamma Bootis (30 deg ele-
vation). I guess both objects to mag 7 and I did not see any flashs
or fluctuations.

My bino (10x70) has 5.x deg field of view, so I guess the distance of
the satellites to 7.5 to 8.5 deg.

Tle's were out of Alans Select.Tle from today.
