Not having very much luck here in my attempts to see ATV parked up behind
Tonight I had a 60 deg pass , but 8/8 thin high cloud and patchy low cloud
made imaging rather difficult.
I managed a few grainy frames at different points in the pass , the gap
between ATV and Zvezda was not that noticeable.
Best view was obtained through a small break in cloud when the two vessels
were about 650 km downrange

The solar arrays on ATV were reflecting well
