ISS and Falcon 9

The ISS followed another orbiting object, it was a few minutes ahead, fainter and seemed to be travelling quicker.

I have really (over)worked this image to bring out the unknown object..

any ideas?

It appears that this may be part of the Falcon 9 rocket which carried the Dragon capsule into Orbit. I will try a re-edit later with normal levels (rather than this image on steroids)

Updated the image with a slightly less enhancement to see the fainter Falcon 9 trail.Pretty happy with this one, despite the remaining noise..
