    At 19:40 I saw ISS rise in the west among clouds.
    Near zenit it became mag -3; disappeared bhind a cloud.
    Weakly shining through the cloud I saw it enter shadow.
    The two craft were too close to be seen saperately; just 3 minutes before 
    grapple.
    
    Saw the whole approach and capture on NASA TV.
    
    Yesterday I went inside too soon to see HTV after ISS.
    Didn't expect it still 6 minutes behind.
    Had some internet access trouble and could not log in on HA.
