Description: my partner and I had waited up to see the ISS pass W-E, which it did at 10:23-10:29. we are used to seeing this and consult heavens-above website for expected pass data. stayed up beyond this as there were a few shooting stars passing in a general E-W direction field. both noticed a visible 'satellite' travelling S-N faster than ISS and dimmer. with (birding) binoculars I could see 2 dimmer lights travelling one out front and one behind, equidistant, as if an extremely long straight object were passing over at considerable height and speed. couldn't make out any shape or width to the object against the star field, as though giant needle was piercing through the sky in a straight line, no blinking or variation whatsoever until it all disappeared into horizon haze to North. checked database of satellites and no correlation. one single brighter object passed on SSE-NNW path just after, possibly Terra due at 22:35.

TV/Radio: not as yet known
