Saw the ISS clearly but no Dragon. Looked like there was a bit of haze so probably behind that.

Did see a bright object at about the right time in about the right place but it was moving South East to North West - so if it was them they must have fallen asleep against the joystick.

Was out at the right time and saw the ISS (that sucker sure can move lol) but a row of houses at the end of my road likely blocked my view of the Dragon as it was very low on the horizon but I also saw the same object moving South East to North West at the right time.

Saw the ISS too but no Dragon. Clear sky for me but wondered if my view was obscured by a hill and the dragon was obscured by that.

I wasn’t all that impressed and am generally not impressed by Modern day space travel. Hopefully things can start to get better.

Are they going to stream it docking tomorrow, or is it done for now as far as live streams?
Yes they will be streaming the docking tomorrow, the live stream is still going on and will be until rendezvous.

Having them nail the landing was very blinking impressive.

Saw the ISS zip over at 10:13PM but not the capsule.

Weren't the astronauts going to name the capsule on launch day?

Nice. Do you know roughly what time the docking will be? Just so I’ve got a rough idea when to tune in :)
Just after 9pm they said ‘19 hours’ so going to be watching from 3pm onwards.

I followed your advice & started watching at 3pm :D
Sure you’ll be able to watch highlights in a bit.
I meant too but recently got into Red Dead Redemption 2 and the time got away from me lol
