If the Klest TV signal is being received, the implication is that TsUP is also receiving telemetry.

Another camera on Progress or view from Zvezda?

EDIT: Confirmation it's from the wide angle camera in Progress.

Range 3 km as seen from ISS.

800 mm lens used from window 9 on ISS, Progress seen as a dot from that vantage point.

That works out to an optical magnification of 13.76x (like looking through binoculars of that power).

I just tuned in to NASA TV expecting to see Progress a few meters from the SM Aft port....and they lost signal with Progress, and it flew right by the ISS?! We're just lucky we didn't have a collision, like the one on Mir!

Into orbital night now.

Past the time of the expected docking, obviously.

Deactivating Kurs (TORU was deactivated earlier), so it appears we won't get another docking attempt soon.

However, the ISS' attitude will be kept for another revolution to keep options open.

Past Russian ground stations now.

Doesn't look like there will be another docking attempt today.

Phasing and orientation-derived power concerns are making it clear docking will have to wait. Also, time is needed to investigate what caused the telemetry lock loss.

ISS tracking and live picture from ISS

Awaiting word from Solovyov (Russian flight controller) as to the definitive course of action, although no-go for docking appears the most probable outcome for today.

Time to unstow the TORU equipment (actually, its already been prepped, as this is a normal op for Progress dockings).

The larger issue is why the new Progress series keeps failing.
