Just managed to spend a half hour outside as the stars came out, Venus was to the SW and Jupiter following it higher in the sky.

I think I've just seen an Iridium flare, whilst looking up in the direction of Cynus I saw what looked like the ISS but it increased in brightness massively for a couple of seconds before disappearing. It wasn't a meteor (I think) because the colour was bright white.

Been up early for work a couple of mornings this week so got to see Orion and Sirius beaming away to my south.

Will hopefully get to go out again later.
