I took my grandson out at dusk to try to spot some stars last night. He
spotted what he thought was a plane. It didn't make a noise and didn't
flash. It passed not far off overhead, Vega (I think) was almost overhead.
I've seen the ISS before (I commented here about a trailing object), the
path seems the same as before, but I thought this time much brighter. It
was far brighter than Vega. I can't remember the exact time, it was around
the time that EastEnders (Gulp!) finished. I'm about 10km north of
Portsmouth.

My Grandfather first interested me in astronomy.

I think the first thing my grandson spotted when I first took him out to
look at the stars was the ISS.
