ISS follower

Hi Forum, I'm a newbie and saw tonight (2014-08-08) that something is following the Station. Google didn't help me, so what could that be? Is it the ATV "Georges Lemaitre"?

Oh, i found something.

Could/Must be the ATV5. Right?

ATV5

I can track ATV5 on my iPad app and I am pretty sure that is what you saw. It should be docking soon. I think I saw it tonight but very faint

I think that an live transmission with distant ATV5 starts already on LIVE ISS @USTREAM.tv:
