Spotted these bright streaks on an image & when I looked up I could clearly see two moving objects, which faded not long after. Couldn't check Heavens Above at the time, so I kinda guessed they might be NOSS satellites.

I track NOSS satellites and do not understand your images. Is that two streaks going up and then two coming back down along the same path? The NOSS satellites do fly like those - B is a little in front of A.

Here are (in the top left) two verified NOSS satellites - USA 228 and the associated "debris". They are pretty dim in this photo!

They are moving in the same direction....It looks like two photos on either side of a flare, with the second taken after the peak flare as they fade away.
