If you missed that mind-blowing Dragon capsule flyover, your consolation prize is the ISS at 10:06pm …viewing conditions are perfect.
I’m feeling a little verklempt right now.
That was some Alastair Reynolds level space action.
I went from watching a live webcast of a spaceship launching from the American coast to stepping outside and seeing it fly overhead.
HOLY CRAP! DID YOU SEE THAT!!?
Four points of light—the Dragon’s just-deployed solar arrays—zooming overhead …a beautiful sight!

In 15 minutes it will fly over my house.
It is entirely possible that some people in the UK will see a space station, a Dragon capsule, and aurora tonight.
