I observed, in late twilight, the Crew Dragon on its 2nd revolution, around
21:18 UT, at a very low elevation pass (9 degrees!) in the southwest.

My observing location was Cronesteyn park on the edge of Leiden, the
Netherlands, where I have a free view to the horizon.

I first saw the ISS pass, naked eye. Then, with 10 x 50 binoculars, I watched
the Crew Dragon, at about magnitude +3 to +3.5 (too faint for the naked eye at
this very low elevation), passing through the southern part of Corvus at 23:18
CEST (21:18 UT).

A stack of 52 images (canon EOS 80D + 2.0/85 mm lens) showing the Crew Dragon
disappear in Earth Shadow can be seen here:
