    Whilst we are being battered by some of the worst storms the UK has seen for 
    a while , I noticed a gap , between systems might open up around 5am this 
    morning.....and sure enough  , it did.
    Long enough to see a very bright ISS , followed by a  mag1 ATV.
    
    Due to heavy gusts , hi magnification was ruled out , but at about 400 power 
    it was just possible to make out the arrays on the ATV , which looked like a 
    high speed bullet shape!
    Not easy to follow in the viewfinder as it was moving considerably faster 
    than ISS
    
    Endeavour is just about to launch....(0627)
