had a good look at

had a good look at the ISS – it wasn’t as bright as I expected, but certainly very obvious – and, blimey, it doesn’t half shift! one horizon to the other in a bit more than three minutes.
actually, looking at the tiny point of light, rushing along, and thinking about the fact that there are *people* up there, framed against the inky blue of the sky, tends to make you think. not sure what it makes you think of, but it does make you think.
more worrying, as I was standing on the city wall looking at the ISS, I spotted a white helicopter flying by. now *that* did make me think!
