    Hi, this could be OT, but I haven't got a clue where to ask...
    I'm from the northwest of Italy
    Just a few seconds before this evening pass of the ISS, at 18:18 UTC, i
    notice a couple of lights travelling from ESE to WNW, a little western
    from the point the ISS shown up.
    I'm not an expert and I don't know a way to estimate range and so on.
    It looked like a civilian airplane (i live near the Malpensa airport,
    which is an European Hub, so I'm used to planes) but NO LIGHTS other
    than the two, blinking on the wings, with a period of about 1 second
    It crossed the sky in about 4 minutes, i guess...I was outside without
    my watch...
    This could sound like "Oh my god, aliens!!", but I'm trying to figure
    out what the hell was that thing, and this is the only place I knew for
    Sorry, if it's too much off topic.
    (If you need more info, just ask)

    I'll go out and find another you...
