I saw ISS
'Scuse the tongue twister - thanks to the marvellous Human Space Flight Sighting Opportunities page, I was able to walk out to the street at 6.44pm and get a 6 minute look at the International Space Station passing overhead. It moved from south-west to north-east, reaching 51 degrees above the horizon, and was very large and bright. I'll keep an eye on the next dates, and make sure I have some binoculars; and I may put my camera on a tripod and try a time exposure.
