    In Tasmania. 8.20pm the ISS is going to pass overhead

    at 8.20 pm (in about 5 minutes) the International Space Station is going to pass over Tasmania, and with such a clear night it should be readily visible to the eye. It will go from the south west to the north east as it passes over our sky.

    Sorry for the late notice, but I only just got told this.

    I watched, did not take photos, it moved across the sky, from one horizon to the other in less than 5 minutes, so it was quite fast. Any photos would have resulted in a streaky light trail and not much else. Was good to watch, less so to photograph well.
