    Hallo Robert,
    Thank you for your information and for your correction! I took obviosly the 
    wrong star from the whole sky chart of heavens-above. Pretty typical 
    beginner mistake. I only remembered it was the brightest star in a big area 
    of the sky, I didn't realised that sirius the brightest of all was there, 
    that is not to excuse.
    I was a bit confused that heavens-above didn't show this object in the daily 
    predictions, although it was that bright.
    I would like to get the gif image of the two track against the stars. Thank 
    you very much!
    From what source did you get the information that it was Cosmos 756 R/B?
    What program do you use to create the gif file?
    Where are the so precise times from?
    Heavens-above says that the space trah cosmos 756 rocket stage had this year 
    it's 25th anniversary of flying around the earth - and so lived longer that 
    the satellite it carried up that already dacayed 8 years ago.
    Thank you for you email!
