It's a glorious, clear moonlit night here. I was out with the doodle admiring the sky earlier but didn't have ISS in mind so missed it :(

I saw it last night twice once at just past 9 and again at 10:40 when it whizzed just past jupiter (not actually past jupiter but you know whati mean!)

I didn't realise it moved so fast across the sky, Like you the first time it could have been mistaken for a plane but it had no flashing lights and wasnt on the usual flight paths round here.

Just saw that pass from our caravan near Corwen in N. Wales. Must be about the best I've seen, seemed to go on forever and hit Jupiter bang on to boot :)

I went out to check the cloud cover before getting the scope out, looked towards Mars and there it was whizzing across the sky like a star that had decided to make a break for it

Goisswatch on ipad is a handy and free app, graphically shows you where the iss is, you can fast forward, and even set alerts for the next flyover.

Also on android, presume same?
