Math View of the Moment

The odds of having back-to-back repeater stations, when choosing randomly, from 308 objects (we have 308 stations to choose from) is

1 - (307/308)^95 = 27%

The odds of us having the back-to-back repeaters like we had at midnight was a little better than 1-in-4, but worse than 1-in-3. We just got lucky is all.
