This is a 11, 30 second frames maximum stack from my AllSky camera, showing the pass of ISS and the japanese HTV9 cargo ship last night between 2020.05.21 UTC 21:56:10 and 22:01:41.

HTV9 was much fainter, and flying about 30 seconds ahead of ISS. Its fainter trail can be seen just below the ISS trail. HTV9 brightly flared twice during its pass.
