    Today ( Sept 4 ) I had a nice high pass of the iss by the moon at around 9:48 UTC.
    
    Around 10 seconds before the iss came flying throught the feild of view of my video camera, I saw
    a different fast moving point of light.
    
    Looking at it's velocity, path, it looks like a peice of debris from the iss. It was around mag 5
    give are take for errors.
    
    They had did a spacewalk, so looks like they might have lost something, are threw it overboard.
    
    I'll post a video of the object soon.
