technology in orbit

Lovely clear sky last night; around 10:15pm BST we watched the very bright ISS go overhead. It started very near Jupiter (which is easy to find as it’s near Venus) and brightened as it arced across the sky.

Then, 25 minutes later, we watched an Iridium flare, also close to Jupiter.

Yay technology!!

Update 14 Jun 2015:

So people get very nice pictures of Iridium events close to (on top of!) Jupiter.
