    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.

    Thank you! Some of these times really do depend on both a clear sky & wicked insomnia though, don't they?! Or a serious bet...

    No - shouldn't use such tactics to get Scouts stargazing!
