While I was in London a while back, the International Space Station was making a few passes overhead for a few nights when it was clear. Looking out of an upstairs window in West London towards the west, for the first time I got to see the ISS with my naked eye as it moved from west horizon to east in just a couple of minutes.

The next evening I was prepared to photograph it with my new Canon EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 lens at full magnification. Unfortunately, its only around 5x magnification, so the station is still just a bright white dot, probably the brightest dot in the sky that evening, but I did manage to capture it.
