Now for something a little different, did anyone watch the space station fly over?
We got a good view here (in Hamilton), clear sky and watched this White Dot move slowly over the sky. Would say it went slower than the old Russian Space station a few days before it was brought down.

Great view here in Hastings. Very large object, and moving quite quick (got to see it for less than a minute as it went over).

Very cool.
