Did you see it?

The International Space Station was clearly visible over Swansea last night alongside Mars around 9:03pm.

But don't worry if you missed it you should be able to get another glimpse tonight at about 9:50 PM and later at 11:26pm, although it might not be as clear with cloud expected later today.

It will be visible for 4 minutes the first time and less than a minute the second.
