Star gazing (part 2)

We went out on Saturday night to look for more Perseid meteors. We tried to find a place where we could get a good view of the skies over Paris. We ended up at Montmartre, one of the highest spots in the city. Unfortunately, the city lights obcure all but the brightest stars.

I saw only one meteor, but we did get to see the ISS (International Space Station) fly overhead twice in the same evening. Can you see the tiny white dot directly over Sacre Coeur? That's the ISS.
