The HA2 and CE2 burns were on the timeline that ChrisG posted for around this time.  (Upcoming shortly on the timeline, but certainly possible there were changes.)

HA2_Burn (17 sec, 2.2 m/s) 053/02:12:29 GMT
CE2_Burn (25 sec, 2.2 m/s) 053/02:58:45 GMT

Per the morning DPC Dragon is 8km behind and 5km below the ISS.  A burn happened early and the crew was told to expect events to occur about 15 minutes early compared to the expected timeline.  The crew is planning to ingress Dragon today.

"Dragon aborted approach, no capture today"

Was just stated on the loop on Ustream ISS feed.

"Dragon is on 24h safe trajectory, *some*  filter unconverged"

Didn't catch the acronym...

Update on the NASA TV coming up now.

"Approx 2:24AM, 15min ago report from SpaceX mission director. Dragon aborted the approach, because of an apparent problem on the filter on the relative GPS hardware that tells the Dragon computers what is the relative position to the ISS"

"Aborted at 1200m below station, now on racetrack pattern around the station, new attempt Thursday morning"

(hopefully got the gist of it listening to the NASA TV report... feel free to correct)

ISS State Vector error in the Dragon flight computer. Relative GPS did not process as planned. Dragon decided to abort to the racetrack.

Based on what was just said, it sounds like a prime suspect in the abort and unconverged filter is an incorrect value having been processed by Dragon's computers, that value regarding the vector and position of the ISS. So, plausibly a software issue (possibly human error-related, given Dragon's triple redundancy against cosmic ray bit-flipping).

Update: Second attempt Thursday morning still a go (anticipated grapple at 6am EST, coverage beginning around 4am EST, or 11am and 1pm UTC). Preemptive early housekeeping also a go :)

Update 2.0: Dragon installation at the cargo hatch expected at 7am EST (2pm UTC) assuming a successful approach.

Mr. Renfrew has turned up to see what's going on.

Dragon is in good health and will make another rendezvous attempt with the @Space_Station Thursday morning.

SpaceX Dragon Rendezvous and Docking Waved Off for Today

Posted on February 22, 2017 at 4:38 am by mcsumner.

The SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft waved off its planned rendezvous with the International Space Station at 3:25 a.m. EST. Onboard computers triggered the abort after recognizing an incorrect value in data about the location of the space station. Per the re-rendezvous plan built into every mission, the spacecraft automatically reset for another rendezvous and docking attempt in 24 hours.

The spacecraft is in excellent shape with no issues, and the crew aboard the space station is safe. The next rendezvous attempt is targeted for Thursday morning. NASA TV coverage will begin at 4 a.m. with grapple expected around 6 a.m. Installation coverage will begin at 8 a.m. Watch live on NASA TV and online at: http://www.nasa.gov/live.
