How to see it now from the UK.

Quote:
All the timings: When and how to see the International Space Station and Crew Dragon spacecraft

Here what to look for tonight (Saturday May 30):

8.22pm - Watch the launch live below.

10.11pm - The International Space Station is due to appear in the west at about 10.11pm. It’s very bright, easily visible and moves quite fast. It will pass high overhead, heading south-south-east, and will disappear after about five minutes.

10.15pm - Crew Dragon should be visible, if skies are clear and you have a clear view to the horizon and look again to the west. It will be low, and head to the east. It should appear like a satellite - a small white spot moving across the sky for a few minutes.
From https://www.cambridgeindependent.co....ve-uk-9111593/

It's clear here so I will go out and have a look.

That is new for SpaceX. They used to fuel up rockets before the astronauts boarded.

It might be too low in the sky to see further north in the UK.

...ladies and gentlemen, please make sure one last time that your seatbelt is securely fastened....the flight attendants are currently passing through the cabins to make a final compliance check and collect any remaining rubbish you may have...after landing, please remain seated with your seat belt fastened until the Captain turns off the Fasten Seat Belt sign... this will indicate that we have parked at the gate and that it is safe for you to move about...do not leave anything in the over-head lockers....



Flight attendants, prepare for landing, please...

Cabin crew prepare for landing, please...


...amazing flight....
