Falcon 9/Dragon was sighted from West Michigan.
It (they) were about 15 mins behind the ISS.
There were 4 objects total, 1 object in front was
of steady brightness approximately 1st magitude.
This was the Dragon I think.

The other three were tumbling shinning from 
1 to <4 magitude at about one flash per 3
seconds.  One object would be the booster,
don't know what the other 2 would be.

Everything passed about 3 degrees north
of Altair at 0927UTC.

Good luck Dragon.
