Space Station

I've always been a bit of a stargazer, and I can't believe I've never seen the International Space Station going over. I've seen loads of satellites pass over, they are tiny, but Pete said he'd seen online somewhere that at 10.35pm last night the ISS was going over. We went out there to watch not expecting to see much, but it was bloody amazing! If you put in your town here (UK peeps only, anywhere else in the world you need to go back to the homepage and choose your country), then click on the bit that says "Daily predictions for all satellites brighter than magnitude: 3.5", it should show you a time to watch out for it. You can't miss it on a clear night, it's like a candle flame passing slowly over.
