The International Space Station

For those of you who are interested in things 'up there' that don't have feathers, the ISS is in the middle of a run of bright passes just before dawn: tomorrow it will travel from west to east at 05.40 and again at 07.15.

This morning its track took it through the constellation Bo├Âtes , 'the Herdsman', which contains the extremely bright star Arcturus - the fourth brightest in the sky, in fact.
