ATV-5 undocked from the ISS this afternoon, and they made a nice Zenith pass in 
late twilight for my location, near 19:14 local time (18:14 UT, Feb 14).

Unfortunately the sky was partly cloudy. But both objects were well visible, the 
ATV an easy naked eye object at about mag. +1, chasing each other in the sky. 
ATV-5 was about 25 degrees (25-30 seconds) in front of the ISS.
