See the space station tonight

Since I mentioned viewing the International Space Station last week I've either been plagued by bad weather or it has been too low above the horizon for me to see. However, the weather looks a bit more promising this evening so I'll be outside looking out for it. You may be able to see it from where you live too over the next 10 days or so. Go to Heavens Above and select your country, enter the nearest town and then click on 10 day predictions for the ISS. In general, tonight you will be able to see the ISS towards the south at around 19:25 BST. You will have better viewing (brighter and higher) the further south you are. I'll make things easier by linking to some UK city predictions directly: Birmingham, Cardiff, Dover, Edinburgh, Leeds, London, Manchester, Middlesbrough, Norwich, Nottingham, Oxford, Portsmouth, Stirling.
