Hi all,

With the sun at just -4.2 degrees (!) here in Leiden, I just saw the Falcon 9 
upper stage pass through the zenit at 19:00 UT, and next the Dragon CRS-6 some 2 
minutes later.

This all in a still bright blue sky with barely a star visisble (Jupiter and 
Venus were visible)!

Both objects were quite bright, in the negative magnitudes, once past the zenith 
and ascending towards the east.

Next pass at 20:34 UT.
