    Hi all,
    
    Against my expectations it was clear this morning, allowing me the opportunity 
    to observe the 04:21 UTC pass of ATV-1 "Jules Verne" (08-008A).
    
    I watched it emerge from eclipse in Ophiuchus around 04:21:10 UTC. It was a very 
    nice object, reaching mag. +0.5.
    
    A picture of the pass is here:

    (unfortunateley not the best of pictures due to lens reflections)
