Hi all,

Got a good view of SpaceX's Dragon CRS-9 cargoship chasing the ISS this morning 
at 1:32 UT (20 July) from Leiden. They were about 20-25 seconds apart.

An image is here:


The Dragon was bright, initially mag +2 but attaining mag 0 briefly while 
ascending in the southeast. Quite majestic sight seeing the pair sail across an 
early morning twilight sky during an extremely warm night (21 C).
