    Just popped out to see this, and also saw a really big perfectly timed shooting star! Makes the night shift feel nicer anyway!

    No chance of seeing anything up here tonight too overcast.
    Friday night,myself and my team leader were stood outside the depot looking at the sky as I told him the ISS was due to pass over,cue a couple of the other teams from the other departments pointing at us as if to say "what are that pair of twats looking and pointing at?"

    Great chance to see the ISS over the UK again tonight at 21:34 Incredibly bright
    We have had a few cloudy nights but tonight and tomorrow looks like being mostly cloud free for most of the UK.

    I figured out where it was and I was looking through the trees, then when I seen it, it was a far distance from where I was looking as it literally fly's across the sky haha. how many other stations are out there? is there any others that can be seen to the naked eye?
