Space Station

Recommended Posts

Watched the space station go over us in Norfolk about 10pm followed by the Japanese rocket playing catch up to deliver to it at 10.50pm 

Perfect  clear sky and interesting to see without a telescope. I believe we will be able to see it for a few more nights.

We watched the space station a few nights ago. Easy to see and interesting once you start to think about what’s up in space.

I always liked the Soup Dragon. Perhaps we could cobble a constellation of stars to honour her.

Oops! Perhaps the Soup Dragon was a he. What does the panel think? Probably best thought about after a few drinkies!

With thanks to Wikipedia...

The Soup Dragon: a benign, female creature with a penchant for Green Soup.

So there you have it.
