ISS passes

I have just had a quick look at the Heavens Above website and discovered that the International Space Station (ISS) is once again visible from the UK. From Manchester we should get some good passes at 17:49 tonight (WSW to S toSE), tomorrow at 18:13 (W to S to SE) and several more over the next few days. These times and positions strongly depend on your location so select your country, enter the nearest city or town name and then select 'ISS passes' to find out the best times for you.

I had great fun earlier in the year pointing out the ISS to random passers-by in the street who were wondering what I was looking at. Sidewalk astronomy is great.
