    So so glad so many of you managed to see this - I am really chuffed - I am also touched that we were all out looking at the same thing magic.

    The addiction will begin in earnest now.

    Simon that is a great shot by the way what does it matter if its a little wobbly? you have a record of light bouncing off the sails of a spaceship - thats pretty awesome

    how often does it pass over us Chris?

    what i can't get over is that it looked like it wasn't very high at all. It suddenly faded out too- is that because the sun wasn't shining on it anymore?

    It passed into earths shadow so it looks like its just turned off

    every few months we get a run of a few nights when it is visible - last nights was good as it was reasonably bright( due to the angle of the sails) at a decent time of the evening and clear skies - TBH its pretty rare you get all three together - keen heavans above bookmarked and check now and again.

    I am blown away by the enthusiasm and response to this thread
