If you want to see the International Space Station when it passes over London, try looking for it at 4.55pm today or 5.39pm tomorrow. It will be visible for about 5 minutes, weather permitting!


With Tim Peake safely aboard the International Space Station, why not tune into theRoyal Institution 2015 Christmas Lectures. They are titled ‘How to survive in space’and will be broadcast at 8.00pm on BBC Four on 28, 29 and 30 December.

Geminids meteor shower

This could be the best meteor shower for a long time. It can be seen all week but from Friday to Monday will be best as there will be no moon then. It is estimated that the average rate will be two a minute, peaking at  2am when there will be even more.
