Satellite unidentified with similar path to OTV 4

Hello everyone. Not if the OTV 4 satellite or other similar trajectory that
is giving me a headache. If the OTV 4 would walk with about 13-14 minutes
late. Another satellite if its path is similar.
I have two photographs, each with 16 seconds of exposure. I times in
seconds with which you can easily calculate the difference in seconds
between the beginning and end of the two photographs together. The first is
not if you complete the course or if you cut a little at first, but the
satellite at first does expected as it moves away, which is to decrease the
brightness, but then appears to be increasing gradually as it moves away,
and that you are starting a superflare what you see on the next. When he
passes around the Big Dipper, the satellite shines with magnitude of about
+1, and then gradually diminishes until just where the first photographs I
send begins, perhaps in around magnitude +2. That begins to gradually
increase its brightness until reaching a magnitude of about -2 in the
second photograph, magnitude surprisingly maintained for at least 30
seconds or more. I have a third photograph that currently do not send
unless necessary, but only shows the beginning of the path at the bottom
edge of the picture, and is also quite moved when pressing the shutter.
The photographs were taken on 05/03/2016 at 4:19:45 UTC, and at 4:20:23 UTC.
I hope it can be sufficient to determine at least one TLE enough about, and
from which satellite it can be.
