At approx 11:38 - 11:40 I was watching the ISS with shuttle attached fly over Calgary, AB (Canada).
Nothing spectacular as I was showing my daughter.
It was travelling from roughly W to E (not entirely sure on coordinates)
As we watched it approx in the sky I would say, best guess an inch behind the shuttle (from our perspective) a flash of light appeared. This travelled
approx an inch behind from right to left for 2 seconds max from start to finish.
I asked my daughter if she saw this and replied yes "What was that Dad"
I replied I don't know but it seemed far too short of a distance for it to be a meteor. It was a clear light and didn't leave a trail.
have the x's as edges of the sky
the word ISS as itself
and s (for start) and f (for finish) for the distance it travelled
; f ISS
While I'm not astronomer in my best estimate it was at least as high as the shuttle.
I guess at a meteor but why so short of a distance (viewable) in the sky unlike the usual streak that I've seen
Any feedback / speculation would be appreciated !
