Clear night skies across Devon are giving stargazers the perfect opportunity to spot the International Space Station in orbit tonight.
As the photos above show the ISS was spotted above Topsham last night passing in front of Ursa Major.
Martin Elcoate tweeted the photo to The Echo last night.

The ISS will cross the Southwest again at 9:50pm tonight, appearing in the west, disappearing in the east. You can see it for about 4 minutes.
Launched in 1988 the ISS is a space station in low Earth orbit and is the largest artificial body in orbit, it can often be seen at the appropriate time with the naked eye
