    When I watch ISS at Feb 8 approximately at 18:09 CET (GMT+1:00) from
    Prague (Czech Rep. app. 50N 14.5E), I saw perhaps satellite which path
    crossed path of ISS somewhere at its top. The path of the satellite
    went from app. north. Satellile's magnitude varied from invisible
    by naked eye from town with million people to that comparable with
    the ISS (mayby little dimmer then ISS). Between maxima elapsed some
    seconds (mayby five or ten).
    On http://www.heavens-above.com I didn't find satellite, which could
    correspond to observe path. Do anyone know, whether it was satellite
    and which or what other it might be.
