I was just waiting outside for the ISS to pass by. There is this realy neat app on iphone (sorry for advert
)that tells you precisely when the ISS
will pass over your head, it basically gives you the path the space station will take it's quite basic but really functional.
Anyway. So I was there just waiting in the wind, with a bright moon. And it came. Always amazing, surprizingly bright and with this very specific
light emitting. I was looking at it for a while and it started arriving to my alignement and that's when I notticed a second light, much smaller,
First I wasn't sure. It was much dimmer than the ISS more like the light emitted by more "normal" manmade satelites. But after a moment I was sure
something was in the track of the ISS.
It was moving at what seemed to be the exact same speed at the same distance, that must have been quite behind.
If I held my hand arm distance apart, it made about 5 cm between my index and thumb (sorry metric system). no idea what distance that makes up there.
Anyway i followed both lights (with my eyes) and at one point the second light disapeared. They both were quite far already...
So my question is as you guess what could it be? Do you guys think it could be some reflection in atmosphere?? like a kind of space ghost dog
But then the angle wound have evolved relatively to the emitting source (sun on ISS on ? ) I mean i am SURE there was a second thing and I witnessed
it for maybe 30 seconds, maybe more... pretty bad at time estimation...
Anyway it was cool to see. Like a bonus pack ISS
Yo's to all
