    It is docked to the ISS, so you're not going to see it as a standalone
    object. One would expect that spacecraft docked to the ISS are shown to be
    in the exact same orbit, but depending on where you get your elsets or your
    predictions from, they quite frequently appear to be a bit in front or
    behind. Happens all the time, just disregard it.
