    I think I just saw the ATV on its first pass, about 5 degrees below
    Saturn, around zero magnitude and moving quite fast. After about 10
    seconds it faded and I lost it. I had not prepared to look for it,
    hence I had no binoculars or (stop)watch. I estimate the time at about
    22:12UT.
    
    The live video feed on Spaceflightnow reported it at an altitude of
    about 150km, which would place it in the penumbra.

        Cees
