International Space Station

Have you seen the ISS pass over head?

How many people are there up there at the moment? I wonder what they are feeling looking down at the world today? Click  on  the  picture  link  below.

The ISS is going to pass over Derbyshire these next few evenings. It’s a bright constant starlike object travelling in an arc through the sky (Generally west to east). Going to be a chance for you to show you know your compass points.

As there are few planes and hopefully little cloud cover it is a brilliant chance to wave to it.

It would make an epic craft / recycling build too!
