    Nice one Nilz :icon_thumright:

    Hope you don’t mind me posting in here that the ISS is going over the UK tonight as well.
    If sky’s are clear you will see the International Space Station going over the UK from West to East at 23:01

    I was tempted to set the camera with a slower shutter speed on a tripod, and see if I could get some pictures, but its cloudy here!

    I went outside 3 nights back and seen about 15/20 meteors, seen the ISS going over (very bright) when I was looking for the meteors to whizz by, I seen20+ satellites going over.


    The ISS will be going over the UK tonight at 21:23, looks like its going to be nice and clear for most of the UK at that time!


    On Channel 5 tonight at 7pm, Documentary examining the technological advances that made the construction of the ISS possible.
