ATV-5 'Georges Lemaitre' and the ISS chasing each other in a partly cloudy sky
Unfortunately, an untimely fields of clouds passed through the sky as the pass commenced. Still, the duo was well visible amidst the clouds. ATV-5 was an easy naked eye object at mag. +1. It was some 25 degrees (25-30 seconds) in front of the ISS.

Frustatingly enough, the clouds disappeared and it was completely clear just 5 minutes after the pass....
