Amateur wanting to confirm some obs..

Hello. Just wanted to ask about the ISS can i confirm if anyone saw it around 9.30pm (i'm in manchester) also using my 127 skywatcher using a 2x barlow lens and 25mm was able to see a good view of Jupiter and the NEB. Still could not see the SEB but i think i was able to just pick up the great red spot, my first time ive seen it, can any one confirm It was what I saw, this was round 22.45.

Thank you

Hi Vicky,

You most probably did see the GRS. To confirm if you did, download the free software only disgned for Jupiter. It's called Jupiter 2 and then input the date you observed the planet. You will really like this program.
I've seen the GRS on the 24/09/10 (from Australia) and managed to get the image on camera. I'll try to post the picture on it here, but if I'm unable to then check this website out: macarthurastronomicalsociety.com.au and check out the members photos. Mine is under Borislav.
Let us know how you went.
Take care and happy vieiwing.
