I suspect space debris in low orbit and high rotation speed

It moves in orbit from south to north at a speed (although it is a mere
hypothesis) of between 1.5 ° / sec and 2 / sec at the zenith.
It is manifested by repeated irregular flashes (intensity) of magnitude
between -2 and -3.
However, the loss of sensitivity of the camera in this case seems an
advantage as manifested by the much smaller another bright flash that
escapes the eye and it appears to rotate relative to brighter.
Today is the second day that I see, the former will be a few days, maybe 3
or 4 days (as check and I'll leave with your date and time).
I have not had much luck with photos, the first day had available the
camera, but it was cloudy, however got the best of the pictures I have so
far, and today, just as happened had occupied the camera and about 30
seconds expected to take forever with a satellite at that speed, at least
it seems to be on their way next to the star Polaris, and a single flash in
the corner of the other photo (again appears with that other small flash at
least bright side, though this is pending check).
When finished checking the last photo, I'll spend all the photos, and give
dates and times. There seems to be nothing in HeavenSat fit but may also
indicate at least the satellite with a similar orbit, but not in speed.
