‘not’ actually….. I spotted a very bright light in the sky tonight, moving fast west to east and Mrs k_e was all “oooooo a UFO….” and grabbing for the binoculars
I realise almost immediately that it was the ISS (International Space Station) and a quick check over at NASA proved me right.
For anyone wanting to catch a glimpse it’s coming round again Friday night 11.26pm. Look WSW to SSE (it’s path) and around 24 degrees above the horizon (higher if you’re south of where I live – Oban, which I presume most of you are). Transit time is only 5 minutes but it’ll be the brightest thing in the sky – you can’t miss it barring cloud cover of course
