I think I just saw the ISS pass over from South to E. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I checked with the online tracking and ran outside. I saw a faint object glowing in the evening sky. Took about 2 minutes to pass over. Definitely wasn't a plane, as I used my minocular. There were not any red lights.

Dead chuffed !

look forward to another pass around 22:!2.

I gave my dad his first look through a telescope at it last night. I put in the 10mm EP (75X) and I tracked it through the finderscope to keep it reasonably steady for him. He was amazed! "You can see the shape and everything" he screamed for the whole neighbourhood to hear!

I saw the ISS as well, but nearly missed it , there was something else moving on its exact course but a lot fainter just seconds before, are there two space stations that track each other?

The one ahead of the ISS was the Progress M-09M (41P) cargo craft which undocked earlier in the day from the space station :)

cheers that makes sense now, i knew it wasnt a meteor as it appeared exactly where the ISS was meant to be, going West to East, just as I'd finished watching that I turned round and saw this really bright light following the same course, I'll have a camera ready tomorrow if its going to be that bright again.
