Observation time: 0035 - 0039z (~15 mins ago)Knoxville, TN35.968N-84.025W1140' elevation
Observed Resurs 01 rocket passing to North from east when another satellite appeared to the west and slightly north of Resurs. Magnitude was about the same as Resurs if not slightly dimmer. UNID was traveling due north. It was slower so it should be at higher altitude. 
UNID First observed approx 80 ° due N as I was observing Resurs at about 75° to NNE. Resurs passed ahead of the UNID about 0038z. 
Using heavens above app, it did not ID but the Resurs being visible at my location.
They passed very close together. Definitely within the same field of view in binoculars.
