Into the night pass...things should be fairly static until NASA TV live coverage starts at the top of the hour...the ground just asked about getting the Lab camera configured so they can look at the onboard Robotics (RWS) data.  (Sounds like a focus adjustment.)

Cady Coleman called up that they're still tracking to a 11:30 GMT release.  The ground will be doing most of the work for now; they expect to need the next crew actions around 11:10 GMT.

Josh notes the abort call will be nominal, that's the HTV console command to send Cygnus away from Station. May be a speedy departure all the same.

You can see them racing towards daylight, which will allow for the ontime departure.

PS If someone could PM me as to how to change the screenshot attachment URL (in VLC), I'd appreciate it ;)

Looks like Cygnus is smiling....if you have an over-active imagination....
