    Default International Space Station

    With a tankful of beer & wine on board, I've just watched the International Space Station pass overhead.

    I hope it wasn't watching me! Is this paranoia, paranormal or just alcohol?

    The ISS takes 90 minutes to orbit the earth (or a bit less depending on how strong the solar wind is blowing) so it should be around again at 1 or so

    just cos your paranoid doesn't mean there were not watching you

    The Space Station crossed the sky from West to East. It's due to rendezvous with the space shuttle on Monday, the shuttle is due to pass the same way in the next 30-40 minutes if it took off on time.

    I went outside just now, taking a break from Jools Holland, and had a "Joxer moment" as I realised that the Space Station had skirted the Starry Plough, which is almost overhead - but I hadn't noticed earlier.

    It's in the stars - FF/Labour - get the money on.

    Is it that bright star-like object that's sort of South East in the sky, so to speak?

    Or is that just another star?

    All will be revealed (and for free Davis Moore)

    Visit www.heavens-above.com set your co-ordinates and you can get a sky map or ISS pass details. Any questions ask away but I might not know the answers.

    The guys & gals on www.irishastronomy.org will though.

    clear skies!
