ATV-3 seen against deep blue dawn sky
Another terrific photo from Japan! This one taken at 04:30 JST 3 October – 21:00 CEST on Tuesday, 2 October, over Chiba, not too far from Tokyo by Yujiro Suzuki (@mossch).
I took a photo of ATV-3 and ISS together in orbit. Both are seen on 2 October at around 4:30 （JST) above Chiba, Japan. ATV-3 passed at 4:26 and the ISS passed at 4:33 at maximum altitude. ATV-3 flies in around seven minutes after the ISS. The background is the Big Dipper. Thanks!
