CrewDragon DM-2 was observed from the Netherlands on the second pass.
It was about a minute late on the first TLE from space-track.org, and
higher in the sky, indicating the spacecraft had manouvered to a
higher orbit already.

It was great to see the launch, but I could not follow the live stream
after orbit insertion, as the ISS was predicted to transit the Moon
about 6 minutes after insertion. I posted a picture and a movie on
twitter:

This was my first ISS transit on either the Moon or the Sun, but it
was remarkably easy to capture on video with a DSLR. I used
https://transit-finder.com/ for calculating predictions, which worked
very well.
