    The ISS will be passing over the UK tonight at 20:02

    It will look like a bright star moving quickly from West to East.

    Thanks for replying to post :thumbsup:

    I don’t know if anyone spotted the satellite ( moving east to west ) just as the ISS was going into the earths shadow?

    That’s odd yesterday I was going to post a link to a website about this and thought no one would be interested...Where is the International Space Station?
    It tracks the location of it, Some interesting stuff on there too!

    There’s a good application on the iPhone called GoISSWatch ISS Tracking, and it knows your location and shows the current trajectory. You can scroll forward in time and see where it’ll be, to work out when it’ll be visible.

    We’ve used it a few times to show the kids when ‘Santa’ was flying over on Christmas Eve.

    Im so happy some of you seen it last night.

    The ISS will be passing over the UK over the next week and into October, I will post up times when I can ( and anyone can feel free to do the same )
    There are times posted on the net, but times can change if work needs to be carried out on the ISS.

    Hope @Dellmassive you get to see it, let’s hope we get some clear skies.

    Oh yeah! That old “honest I am just parked in this car park waiting for the wife” line...;)

    Saw the ISS a few months ago whilst camping, so light pollution was really low.
