         I may have been a little hasty with my previous identification!  
         Always double check (and check ALL your resources)!!! ....
         Well, I don't think I was correct before - those satellites would have 
         been visible at the same time (around 05:30 UT) but did not cross 
         paths.  The only ones I can find for that morning (we are talking 
         4/3/2000 here I take it - from the E-mail date) are ... 
         91-086-A (21819) Intercosmos 25 [436x3017 82.6 deg] moving S - N
         86-074-A (16986) Cosmos 1782 [597x623 82.5 deg] moving N - S
         although they would have passed at more like 05:23 in the Leo/Lynx 
         area (within a couple of degrees).
         Anyway, I reckon these are by far the most likely candidates.
         And this time I'm sure .......
