    Ooh! Some social times at last!


    I expect now the weather will break, and the skies will be cloudy for the duration!

    There is a chance of seeing the ISS tonight at 11:29pm tonight for anyone with clear skies and an excellent one at 1:05am if anyone is still awake! The later one is visible for 10 mins from when it first is visible to when it dissapears

    Popped out just before 05.30 to see it go past!

    Nice clear sky, and it sailed right past a very pretty crescent moon!

    Very frustrating for me, as I've been up at the early morning times we've had lately, but it's been too cloudy.

    Two transits this morning, and both with thick cloud.
