    Thanks to Derek (torbrex) for reminding me about this!
    The Space Station is back to see for insomniacs and night workers.
    It is visible from tonight/ tomorrow morning. Times are


    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!

    Just seen it go right across the sky will try and catch it again later.
  • **professor~yaffle**
    Can I ask a silly question? How does it appear twice in one night? I thought it went from West to East across the sky and that's it till it comes round again.

    Only just seen this!
    Here dead we lie because we did not choose
    To live and shame the land from which we sprung.
    Life, to be sure, is nothing much to lose,
    But young men think it is,
    And we were young.
