    Saw ISS with HTV 1 very close to ISS passing at 18:06UTC.  This
    happened in twighlight with the sun still above the horizon.
    The contrast between ISS and HTV in brightness was striking.  Distance
    between the two objects was maybe 30 arcseconds.  I'm looking out for
    the next pass which is much better but HTV could have been docked with
    ISS by then.
