ISS visual passage

We don't often have good "seeing" in San Diego, but we did tonite, 
and I have some questions...

ISS went over just as predicted, overhead at 26mar08 
0308Z.  Estimating the magnitude at -3.0...We had a little bit of 
haze, and it looked like a lighted cigar!

About a minute before, an object on the same course mag ~1.5, and 
about 2 min after ISS, another object,  same course, mag ~1.0...

Can someone tell me what the other objects were?  The shuttle??  A 
garbage dump??

I've not really been following ISS progress, again "seeing" in San 
Diego is a real variable....

Tonite was an exception...

Any help appreciated...

We have almost an identical pass for ISS on 28 mar Z.

                    Disagree: I learn....
