International Space Station

Over the last week we have watched the international space station pass over our house 3 times, it was awesome. Shame we were not able to get a clear photo. I wonder how many other people have been doing the same.

In this photo provided by NASA, the SpaceX Dragon capsule is berthed at the International Space Station Sunday April 20, 2014 as photographed by the Expedition 39 crew members onboard the orbital outpost. Two NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station will conduct a spacewalkWednesday April 23, 2014 to replace a failed backup computer relay system on the space station's truss.

Also saw Mars through our telescope in the very early hours of the morning. We have a beautiful photograph we took of the moon last year through our telescope and had it printed on to canvas as it looks so surreal.  It's great looking at the sky in the summer as it's warm but you do have to stay up until the early hours.  The winter is too cold for me!

Wonder what we will see tonight, well if I can stay awake long enough.
