Last weekend on clear evening (how very unlike the UK) we wondered if any stars or planets would be out . . a quick search actually told us the International Space Station would be passing over soon (after entering out location details). Seems the ISS is almost always passing over soon as a full orbit is only 91 mins.
It was rather cool to see it passing by overhead, amazing to think man can create something that viewable from land and traveling so fast. Check it out if you get the chance.
