A UFO was seen following, then catching up to and moving slightly ahead of the ISS on 06/21/15 at app. 21:14 to 21:15 Pacific Time.

My husband and I were on our deck, watching for the ISS to appear in the WNW and cross the sky going SSE. The scheduled time was 9:11pm, but the ISS appeared 2 minutes later. We watched it diagonally come across the sky near the crescent Moon, and from the same direction, we saw a zig-zagging object coming across on the same trajectory, changing colors, traveling faster than the ISS.

I called my husband's attention to the 2nd object and said, "That UFO is trying to catch up to the Space Station!" By the time the ISS was slightly S/E of our deck, indeed, the zig-zagging object did catch up with and surpass the ISS.

When the 2nd object was slightly ahead of the ISS, the object slowed down and kept pace with the speed of the ISS, slightly ahead of the ISS. The objects were approximately the same size, and the UFO was still zig-zagging back and forth just ahead of the space station, changing colors as it winked out in between the zig-zags.

As we watched both objects disappear over the ridge to the east of our house, they appeared to be about a dime (held at arm's length) apart.
