    Thought it was quite muted viewing tonight after the brightness of last night and the earlier evening viewing tonight.

    It was spectacular last night from Portsmouth. First time I have seen it and it was breathtaking. My wife and daughter were actually excited to watch it!
    Iíve downloaded a tracker and itís set an alarm for tonight. Might try and get some photos.

    Downloaded the app and watched it tonight at 19:40. My daughter asked how many people are in it and would we be able to see them I said only if they wave out the window.

    I've probably been in the garden to watch the ISS pass over about a dozen times over the years, but tonight's was the most spectacular. Starry night and amazing Earthshine on the Moon just above the horizon as well.

    Saw the ISS tonight. The low orange crescent moon is spectacular but Venus is incredibly bright at the moment.

    Good video about that from about a month ago here:

    Certainly takes a bit of skill.

    Did no one else see the row of bright dots that seemed to cross it path in a northerly direction?

    They went on one after another for about ten minutes and all in the same direction!, I thought we were being invaded and was ready to break out the guns!

    I then found out they were satellites that were sent up by Spacex, Around sixty or so of them and many many more to still go up, They're to proving broadband for places that can't currently get it, You have to buy Spacex's receiver though!!

    They will be covering almost all of the globe by the sound of it and the project is called Starlink!!


    They were actually farther apart than these so either I missed the beginning or they've been made to move to a set distance, Apparently they're powered for moving or coming back down at the end of their lifespan!
