Another option is to use "heavens above" website which allows customised data to be produced for satellite sightings. i missed the shuttle/ISS pass you saw, as you say the previous passes of both objects has always been worthwhile, especially in twilight

The most spectacular sighting was week before last when both the shuttle & space station were visible within a minute of each other.It makes interesting computer usage especially for children if you use the nasa sight and load the tracker......

Click on REAL TIME DATA in the heading then ORBITAL TRACKING in the drop down window.
You can also access the SIGHTING OPPORTUNITIES for Manchester on this page.
All in all some fascinating stuff. '<img'>

The International Space Station (ISS) flies over Marple for several days from 4th December. I will post details on my site nearer the time. It will fly over at the same relative speed as a high flying jet once a night and will be visible for a few minutes-visit my site for details and times which i will post from the 1st Dec.
