ISS last flyby today dawn, followed by most probably Cygnus OA-9 - there was no prediction available yet, still some years of experience whispered into my ears that Cygnus would follow ISS within some minutes. No other satellite had this direction and path at this time.
ISS crosed the f.o.v. at 01:11 - 01:13 UT
Cygnus came 9 minutes later, at 01:20 - 01:22 UT
They followed similar path, although Cygnus must be at a lot lower altitude, it was also quicker. At its peak brightness it was cca. +2 magnitudes.
I aimed my camera to capture the brightest part of the flyby increasing the chance to get Cygnus there too.
