    I just saw an ISS pass here over Belgium at 17:58UTC.  In front(some 2
    degrees) there was another object moving.
    I didn't expect that.  The unknown object was much fainter than ISS, maybe
    mag +5.  Does this have something to do with the ongoing spacewalk which
    was planned today ?
    See here:
    The two Russian cosmonauts of the Expedition Three crew living on the 
    international space station will step outside today for a spacewalk 
    to perform outfitting of the newly arrived Pirs docking module. The 
    excursion begins at 1400 GMT (10 a.m. EDT).
