    Default ISS tonight April 24 sighting...what was that?



    I live in Phoenix. at about 8pm tonight I watch the ISS. Spectacular. At about the zenith, another satellite appeared in front of the ISS and lead it to the SSE horizon. Anyone know which satellite it was?

    I do know a Soyuz craft had un-docked and is due to dock with the station again later.
    Perhaps this is what you saw, best check the NASA website for more info.

    Then again it may have been something else, just my thoughts.

    Cheers

    I saw it too....pretty cool...it stayed in view for what seemed to be quite a long time...I was outside setting up my scope when it came over.......I have a little gadget on my desktop that keeps track of that kind of stuff and gives me an alert......
    IF I remember to look at it...
