The ISS orbits Earth every 90 mins, 350km up, at 17500mph. Just think; when you watch it pass over, you're looking at a massive SPACESHIP!

How long is the waiting list for a pitch?, just think of the talking point that would give everyone.

Well guess who forgot last night!!!. Is it visible tonight Tony and Julie?
Im with you 2, Tia and Zumba as Ive no idea what Im looking for. I stood outside on 15th April (twice) as Tony suggested and got excited when I saw some red lights low down in the sky.......until I realised they were the lights on the top of one of the towers at the local power station. Cant say I saw the space station though
