The big red Virgin Atlantic hot air balloon has floated over Whixall Marina twice this week...quite a sight.

We also witnessed the amazing sight of the International Space Station passing overhead us in the marina on Tuesday just after nine o'clock. Luckily it was a clear night. Lots of information and pictures on the Nasa site and you can even follow the path of ISS on a Google map if you click this link. It was travelling across North America at 17000 mph at a height of 260 miles when we looked at the site!
