I just looked at the sky and saw a star, not so bright but moving very fast and in almost a minute it disappeared, as it was so fast. Timing was in between 9.35-9.45 PM in Nuremberg, Germany. My location is 49.45, 11.06.

So was it International Space station?

Anyway, I'm going to verify it after 92 minutes if i am able see it again.

Heavens-Above shows two fairly bright objects passing over Nuremberg at that time on 2020-04-14:

  • a Resurs-O1 rocket moving south to north
  • an Iridium-4 rocket moving north to south

The next visible ISS passes at your location are between April 28 and May 3, all before dawn.
