Morden sighting 26/09/08

So sorry I should have submitted this on my previous report from today as an asdie.

Last night [26/09/08] at approx 9.30pm below the constellation I know as the 'frying pan/saucepan,' i was watching an aircraft taking off fromt Gatwick Airport. As I do if i'm out there.

Just below the constelattion was a small star, same size as the others and same colour as the rest of the stars but it was moving very very slowly.

It may well have been a satellite or the space station but after witnessing both of these on many occasions I found it a little odd that it was so distant and so slow. I find satellites tend to leave a trail as a shooting star should and are fast and the space station when we see it is very bright. first time we saw the space station i thought it was some kind of spy plane.
