We did smile but only just! Happened to check my phone at 1722 so rushed DCs into the garden in their socks grin

Eldest (14) very game & cheering on maniacal excitement of youngest (10)!!!

poorbuthappy Wed 24-Dec-14 17:39:22

Yes!!!

EdSheeransGString Wed 24-Dec-14 17:41:29

Yes we did, dd1 (5) nearly burst with excitement

It was lovely smile

Iwantacampervan Wed 24-Dec-14 17:42:25

Yes - very clearly. I was excited - not sure about DDs (13 &15) but they came out to watch to humour me.

SpottyTeacakes Wed 24-Dec-14 17:42:28

Yes we did! We're under a flight path though so took a few seconds to register wink

EElisavetaofJingleBellsornia Wed 24-Dec-14 17:43:26

Just got back, very excited DCs smile

utahforever Wed 24-Dec-14 17:43:30

Yes we did amid much excitement - Christmas has now started smile

Yes same as you OP. Looked at phone at 17.22 and rushed boys out and caught it. DS1(9) murmured something about it looking very like the ISS but i shushed him and said everything looks the same so far away grin hope i got away with it!

Nervo Wed 24-Dec-14 17:45:40

Yes, we saw it.

Were we the only ones who saw two?

Maybe I've had too many g&T's.

TinklyLittleLaugh Wed 24-Dec-14 17:47:02

Yayyyy! DS(8) is beside himself. Many thanks to whoever it was reminded us all this morning.

SisterMoonshine Wed 24-Dec-14 17:48:07

Just wow!
I was expecting it to look just like when you usually see a satellite - but that was special.
DD thinks she heard him shout "On Dasher!" and bells

TheWordFactory Wed 24-Dec-14 17:48:27

We think so! Certainly my nieces (6 and 3) are certain grin.

pieceofpurplesky Wed 24-Dec-14 17:49:39

Yes .., I think I was more excited than ten year old DS though!

RandomHouseRules Wed 24-Dec-14 17:51:47

We did! Over the rooftops of London. Kids are now very excited indeed!

CherryLips1980 Wed 24-Dec-14 17:52:38

I missed it sad

unclerory Wed 24-Dec-14 17:52:47

We saw it, it was much higher in the sky than I was expecting and was very exciting! The DDs were hanging out of the bedroom window and there was much discussion about where he was going.

Ujjayi Wed 24-Dec-14 17:56:47

CherryLips - you can see it again at 1858 apparently so still time!

Aww so glad so many people spotted it. It's such a clear night but I wasn't expecting it to be so obvious.

aurorasky Wed 24-Dec-14 17:59:01

Yes, my nearly 3 year old was waving 'hello Santa'. My eyes leaked a bit. Hope the sky stays clear for 7pm.

SantasSparklySack Wed 24-Dec-14 17:59:25

Have I missed something? do tell!!

dingit Wed 24-Dec-14 18:00:50

We saw it here too. Beautiful clear sky tonight. Me more exited than the dc ( teens)

BrightestAndBest Wed 24-Dec-14 18:02:16

Yes. By complete coincidence we left the church after the Christingle service at precisely 17:22. Good timing fsmile

SpottyTeacakes Wed 24-Dec-14 18:04:37

It was higher than I thought it would be too!

lolalotta Wed 24-Dec-14 18:40:38

We did toooo!

Stitchosaurus Wed 24-Dec-14 18:48:13

I kept asking "can you see the reindeer? Can you hear the sleigh bells?" to try and plant the memory for DS fgrin he looked at me as if I was mad! He's 3 and is half excited-half terrified of Father Christmas. Tucked up fast asleep now, god knows what time he'll be up tomorrow!
