Cairns, Australia - 08-27-15
Rear Patio of Apartment at a Birch street Manunda Cairns, Queensland.
While observing satellites as we often do, my partner and I witnessed what looked like two satellites of a magnitude -4 or brighter travelling alongside each other in a South to North direction at what was a typical Satellite altitude.
Only, these two objects blinked on with intensity that caused us both to let out a gasp, and an expletive.
As we watched the object/s get brighter as they moved, and had a connecting tube like structure between them that emanated a milky glow; very dull compared to the brightness of the lights.
The Object/s travelled side by side as a single unit for up to 20 seconds before blinking out simultaneously, not to be seen again.
This observation took place at 18:44 Local Time GMT +10 and left us both in awe.
We watch Satellites most evenings, and are familiar with aircraft and other phenomena, but this was a stirring observation that made us search for other possible witnesses online, finding none so far.
