ATV-3 imaged by radar

Some excellent images of ATV-3 imaged on Friday, 23 March 2012, shortly after lift-off by the team that operates the Tracking & Imaging Radar (TIRA) at the Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques (FHR), Wachtberg, Germany. Thanks for sharing these excellent — and a little spooky — views!
