Last night I tried to see the meteor shower, but not much luck. I only saw 2 faint ones that lasted about 1/2 second. So I looked at the moon while I was waiting around. By 1am local time, I wasn't seeing any meteors and the moon was getting boring, so I put my scope away in the garage. I took one last look in the sky before calling it a night and saw what appeared to be a satellite. I see satellites all the time over Holland. Most of them appear as small dots barely visible to the naked eye. But this one was bigger, very bright and easily visible to the naked eye. Instead of a single small dot, I saw one large dot with a smaller dot in the front of it, traveling North at 11pm GMT on 8/13/2014. I watched it for about 15 seconds before it went behind the clouds. See the picture I drew on my computer. I didn;t have enough time to get the binoculars out of the garage for a closer look. Could this have been the ISS? If not, then what the heck was it?
