. Was
> it my imagination or was there something ~10 ISS lengths west of the ISS?

Sam, et al,

I didn't see anything back from the ISS, but I was viewing naked eye.  Prior
knowledge may have allowed me to see the interloper.  Anyhow, from my
location, the ISS occulted Beta Aries, and touched Alpha Leporis on it's
Southern side.  In both instances, the stars were blotted out by the
brighter ISS, but Beta Aries was a head-on hit.  Anyone else get lucky?
