Fabulous and watching the pictures at the moment.

I regularly watch the ISS passing over. Fantastic sight.
You can get the details of times and dates from the NASA website.

I've never managed to see it. note to self "must try harder".

interesting the Russian space programme is less cutting edge technology than NASA, using the Soyuz etc. That old saying - if not broken, don't fix it. A bit like a Morgan really.

That struck me too, they were explaining on TV how the launch technology was unchanged since they put the Sputnick up!

My son, who is doing an Aerospace Engineering degree at Bristol, came home from University at the weekend and watched it with us. I told him when he qualifies not to bother going to Russia for a job as they haven't needed engineers since the late fifties!

I use the app ISS Detector on my Android phone. It can be set to give an alarm when the ISS is due to pass over. I am sure there would be similar apps for other operating systems.

The ISS flew over our house on Christmas Eve just after 8pm. I was able to show both my granddaughters that Santa was on his way and that they had to go to bed straightaway ... Which they did!

Good luck Tim, come back safely and tell us your stories.

Cheers
