ISS seen, not imaged

Today I first watched the launch of Soyus TMA-19M on NASA TV.
Nice show in a clear blue sky. Booster and fairing seperation were
clearly visible.

At 17:15 UT ISS and Soyuz made a high pass over here. Saw ISS
in gaps between clouds using binos; Soyuz already too close to see
seperately; only a few minutes before the aborted automatic first
docking attempt. Unfortunately there were clouds at the camera point.

Watched the 2nd hand controlled docking on NASA TV, but bad to
no video at the docking time, just voices.

Perhaps more luck with the next Progress or Dragon.

Regards
Leo Barhorst
