Light in the sky
« on: 13 May 2018, 21:44:48 »

Sat at home looking out of the window I can see a bright white single light , it appears about the same time every night just after 2100 hrs . It first appears at approx 270 degrees in the west and in have an hour it has moved over to 280 degrees .
I donít think it is an aircraft as it only appears to move sideways and does not get any closer or further away , and it repeats this every night .
Any ideas what it could be ?
Apparently SWMBO reckons it is the space station ?

Theres an app for your phone that tracks the ISS.

Used to see it quite clearly if we were out at the right time of night. :y

Over the years we have seen plenty of stuff in the nights sky here in Spain. Often cloudless. The ISS is very obvious. We once had the joy of seeing the servicing rocket split from it on its way back to earth.

the best thing we saw was a top secret solar powered drone capable apparently of circumnavigating the globe. Not that top secret as the internet had info on it and its location. I think there is more stuff up there being tested that anyone lets on away from commercial air routes.
