    Saw ATV 3  pass from Leiden, the Netherlands, around 4:56 UTC, in a blue 
    sky  (sun at -7).
    It was bright, steady, mag 0 to -1, easily visible as it  sailed through 
    the S-SE 
    at about 25 degrees altitude max. Captured a few  pictures of the pass as 
    Well . . . at least somebody saw something worthwhile tonight.   Meanwhile 
    Wallops Island a combination of poor weather and a boat that refused to  
    move out of
    the restricted offshore zone put the kabash on tonight's launch of 5 sound  
    that will create glowing chemical trails to test for upper level jet stream 
    Next attempt will be Saturday night at the earliest.
