    Not brilliant sightings but they do improve a bit from the 27th onwards!!!!

    To see it face south and look up at the sky about 60 degrees above the horizon. The space station should go from West to East across the sky. A steady white light.

    Not really sure why I'm posting these times because they're all at stupid o'clock. Times are for Birmingham.

    Lovely clear night yesterday, easy to spot the ISS sadly today it's been cloudy all day unlikely to clear.
