not everyones cup of tea but just now in crete I have been watching the European Space Staion pass over Chania most evenings. It is very easy to see and travels as fast as a shooting star but has a lot more clarity. details of viewing times are on www.heavens-above.com/esa
. You then follow the links and put the area you are living in and it will tell you what time to start star gazing. (this week is between 2130 and 2200) A while ago they sent a shuttle up to the space station and you could see both craft orbiting a short distance apart.
