The ISS just before dawn and Venus at sunset!

Lovely sight in the south-west this morning: the International Space Station crossing the sky from SW to NE. Honestly, it's well worth making an effort to take a look just before dawn over the next few days (see the transit chart a couple of days ago.)

Also: the planet Venus is a spectacularly bright object in the south west, setting at around 6.30pm. The last image (taken at 5.00pm) shows the gibbous phase, visible with even a small scope!
