Just watched the International Space Station go over and boy, was she bright. Got a heads-up tonight from a guy I follow on Twitter who pointed me to the website below, and said go outside at 7.04 and look in the north west:

And there she was - so cool!
And then we poked around on the website and found out all sorts of stuff about the ISS. And, our exact location, as above. What fun - hooray for clear dark skies!
