Hey DD, you do know you can edit your posts rather than posting again if you like.

Look for the little screwdriver and spanner on your post or use the modify link at the top of your posts.

Thanks Data, I did know about that but in this case it seemed better to own up and repost though  BooBoo

I was just thinking it would be better to not leave a bad link on the thread, will be annoying for our guests.   

Good forum protocol and all that.

Looks like the 2oth and 21st will be the best nights for my area, where the ISS sill glide past, followed shortly by Cygnus. Smiley Wish I had the video gear to handle recording the events, but I do not. Sad

Looks like the 19th for you Dave, it'll be 20°. Still low. 10° will be pretty hard to spot. 29th for the ISS. Oops, just spotted that was this morning.

I may check the weather forecast and get up before 6am. Then again, DD's assessment is probably going to come true.
