Note how red the leaves of roses can be this time of year, amazing aint it. This one is vira de flora. not sure if spelling correct. Oh by the way guys look for the international space station at10 57 this evening high in the south passing close to Mars. Be out earlier as it can be seen a few minutes earlier than this as it approaches its zenith.

Spelling may be correct. But whether it should have the first letters typed in Upper Case is another thing!!!!!!!  :)

Rose leaves are very red here too is there a reason for this?

Martin,  just saw the ISS it moves faster than I expected, but such a sight to see thank you for the heads up

Martin - just been looking up at the sky to the south and saw a small flashing light moving from west to east - was that the ISS??

Thanks Martin, just saw ISS, but come on, it was 20 seconds late appearing ;-))

Hi Nuala it does not really flash and it is fairly big and bright, but it does go from west to east. Well done you lot. It cannot been seen that many times per year, even though it goes around the world in 1 hour 20 minutes. Thanks for looking, there are half a dozen guys in that.
