For one night only: Heidemarie "Toolbag" Piper's toolbag is visible tonight

At least in Europe:

For the first time in history, star-gazers will be able to catch a glimpse of a tool bag flying across Britain's night sky, after it was accidentally dropped by an astronaut during a space walk to repair the International Space Station.

But keen space watchers will need a telescope to see the bag, which will appear tonight as a speck in the sky, just ahead of the space station between 5.40 and 5.44pm.


And on Youtube.

According to our media you should be able to watch it with simple binoculars - the space station is even visible to the naked eye ... if the sky isn't clouded like just now.

We need a bunch of ion-drive nanobots to clean up LEO.
