    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.

    And for the rest of the month!

    A very good transit yesterday evening, 5 minutes, virtually overhead at its apogee, in a lovely clear sky.

    Also very good the day before, too.

    First I'd seen for ages, too.

    I got an excellent sighting tonight, noticed it was clear just before I left so checked the time for Newcastle and it was 3 mins at 5:56pm so decided to watch it from the giant lit up Christmas tree we have at the Civic Centre (We get a free tree every year from Bergen, Norway as a thanks for help Newcastle give it in the Second World War) anyway nice dark site, despite the lights and saw it all the way across, bonus was a Airbus 380 going the opposite way with its contrails, yes I know I am sad

    That's strange....... I usually get emails about forthcoming sightings, but I didn't get anything for 26th or this morning.

    Maybe because it would have been very low and very short?

    I remember this time last year Spot the Station didn't update their site for ages and I was relying on the ipad for times, which was ok but not very helpful to those in the North!

    OK, so.....spot the station is doing the same thing it did last year, not updating it's info

    It's only showing times up to yesterday so I've taken this from my ipad but the times are for the south of England.



    Found a better one, these times for Birmingham

    Super Blue Blood Moon tonight .



    Total eclipse in the Far East.


    We won't see the Blood bit, but could see the super blue moon.


    About 2am though.


    Sky clear at the moment, but that could change.
    Will have to set my alarm!

    Strange one tonight

    On a whim I thought I would check the Space Station times and of all the places it could have been on the planet, just at that time it was going past my front window.....so I saw it, of all the places it could have been

    We must have the same orientation!
