International Space Station

Should you wish to wave at Tim Peake (remember him?) the ISS began a long series of passes over the UK tonight: I attach a photo of it going behind the Acer tree by my pond!

There's also a photo of Orion with another, fainter satellite passing through and a couple of images of well-known and bright constellations you might enjoy picking out,

The table shows when the ISS is visible from the eastern UK: the middle column shows magnitude (brightness) Minus numbers are the brightest! The third column gives the time when the space station becomes visible in the south-west.
