Discovery and ISS Photo op

Just a heads up notice....

The shuttle and ISS will be visible to the south travelling W to E on Friday between about 6.30 and 6.50 depending where you are and Saturday night at a similar time. Saturday is a better pass being more overhead.

I also think this is the last shuttle mission for Discovery! .... So it really is a bit special if you can capture it..... Good luck

Only two more shuttle missions to go!

Well, I didn't capture it but I did see them both flying over Coniston. Brilliant.
