    Great sight indeed to see the satellites especially the biggies of HST, ISS, Geosat, Envisat and the Iridium series....takes your breath away.


    You can track the location of them all at this site...think I have it set for ISS right now.

    It looks like the Chinese launch of Shenzhou - 7 is following right behind the ISS tonight. They just launched the three man craft today. Give them a wave as they go over.

    Pretty small, would be a lot harder to see Mick, but it would be on the same path. Depends upon how clear the sky and how late it arrives. It sort of has to be there right after sunset (hour or two) or before sun rise. The satellite has to be up above still in sunlight (or dusk or dawn light) and you need be in the Earth's shadow. Wonder why the Chinese are "shadowing" the ISS?:shocked025:
