Caption: The SpaceX ship Dragon is the faint tail on the left, behind the brighter ISS. This was a pleasant surprise when I saw it. I only expected to capture the ISS.

Great capture!  What a nice surprise.....  I do miss the Space Shuttle, though.
edit to add:  There appears to be a faint third satellite, perpendicular to and passing through the ISS path.  Were you able to identify it?

Lovely and bright night sky.

Thanks for the education.

Will read more about the SpaceX Ship Dragon and the Brighter ISS. Those terms are Greek to me, but the photos help tell the story.
