Not Jujitsu related, but still pretty nifty I reckon.

Look up at 21:40 (if you're in the UK).

Face south, look pretty much straight up, it'll fly over from west to east, down in london it'll be straight up, the further north you are you'll need to look a little south.



It'll be a bloody great big star, moving about the speed of a plane, but no flashing lights.

You'll know it's it cos it'll be mega bright, so if it was a plane you'd also see the flashing lights, plus you'd hear it!

Was an amazing view last night, but went dim when it reached right over head as the solar panels stopped reflecting straight down - tonight it should be bright across the whole sky.

If ya missed it tonight, try tomorrow (Sunday) at 22:00, perhaps start looking 5 mins before, should be good too cos you'll see it curve as it's passing over us.

Oh, and there's a meteor shower tonight too, about 1 every minute, face Ursa Major (the plough, frying-pan), and look to the right.
