Does anyone else watch the ISS passing over. I get excited every time I see it and wave at them as they fly over! Two very bright passes already this week one of which was right over my house My Dad dragged me out of bed to watch Sputnik going over as a child and I have never lost that awe at how magical it is to orbit the earth and fly through space (though obviously very scientific).

It passed over on Boxing Day 2 years ago and two of my DGCs were convinced it was Santa going home and checking everyone had their presents! Now that was magical!!

Yes we do, I get an update email to remind me when to watch for it . It's awe inspiring to stand in the garden in the dark watching it pass over.

Yes, was very clear and bright last night. Lovely standing out in the mild ,dark,sweet smelling garden watching it pass over. Will go out again tonight.

I do - have an app on my iPhone that tracks it and forecasts when it's due. Never get tired of watching it.
