    We watched the ISS pass over shortly after 21.30 yesterday and I assumed it was the brighter of the two lights

    travelling W-E. If that was the case, what was the dimmer light travelling directly in front of the ISS?

    Does it have its own satellite?

    I saw it too. There is a russian supply rocket up with it at the moment. AFAIK it was docking so it was running ahead of the ISS but at slower speed so the ISS wil catch up and then they will dock.

    I think it has to be done this way as the ISS can't change it's speed instantly but the rocket can, so if something went wrong the rocket could pull away in front, not possible if approaching from the rear.

    hi

    progress 38 the unmanned supply ship undocked fom ISS yesterday morning and will re-enter next monday after russian control conduct some engineering tests progress 39 another unmanned supply vessel wil be launched sept 8

    i too saw it last night and if you have can get hold of a radio scanner and tune it 145.800 you will sometimes hear the radio amatuer licensed astronauts talking like i did last night or if you tune to 145.825 you hear packet radio tones, a sort of txt,ing for radio hams,there are a couple of freeware programs on the net you can use to decode these as long as you connect the scanners headphone socket to the line in socket on the computer ,i have done this and i am no geek!

    I've often watched the ISS pass over with the Space Shuttle behind. The ISS is always the brightest of the two due to it's sheer size.

    Spotted it flying over here last night at 8.50pm. Very bright (about the same brightness as jupiter) and lasted a full 5 mins! :air_kiss:

    The ISS or Zarya passes can be found on many websites, search for 'ISS passes' many results will follow.

    A couple of links below will help you out on when it will pass:

    On the 2nd September 2010 the ISS passed very high (and bright) from my location, took iso from 1600 to 800 on first image - used Canon 350d with Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens, tripod and remote shutter. Images below:
