The ISS is due to flyover the UK around 5.20pm later and the UK should get a really good view. For exact timings, look here (I've found the website can be a bit slow.)
Let's hope for clear skies and happy spotting everyone!

Would've been nice, but it seems to not be working.

It is a bit of a rubbishly slow website. But for most of the country it's from 5.20pm onwards. Bit more info (on a better website!) here.

Heading out in a bit to see if we can spot it. Sky looks clear so should be able to.

Yey saw it despite some low cloud. Made poor infirm df "race " to the bedroom to watch as he is interested in space stuff. dd wants to know what time is it up there? I said it had to be ours as we have GMT and therefore we are in charge of time grin

(luckily its a bungalow so the bedroom is on the same floor)

We saw it. At least I think we did. A dot moving across the sky, not flashing like a plane. DS1 was completely convinced it was Santa anyway so it worked.

Thanks for letting us know - we headed out and it was very clear in surrey!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.

We saw it! Very exciting. Like a moving star. Such a beautiful clear night.

We saw it - bang on 5.21 when they said it would be here. I waved - do you think they saw me???

Merry Christmas to you as well, May09.
