All went well. smile
Will not be able to see it here as it will be too low on the horizon looking southwest.
Trying to track it on https://www.heavens-above.com/ but it is down, also trying to track the ISS but that site is down as well. Must be too much traffic to their websites.

Here it is passing us just before 9pm, it was just above the sun. You can still see it high up now.

You can get a good view of the space station tonight Greenwood.

Rises 10° over the horizon (start time): 21:23
Approaches From (start direction): West
Highest Point This Pass: 21:25
Sets/ Goes into Earths Shadow (direction): SE
Goes into Earths Shadow: 21:30
Approximate ISS Pass Details: Daylight Pass Below the Moon.

DD, can you clarify that image? It looks like the craft is moving from left to right, but the SpaceX rocket was moving from right to left.

You are assuming it heading towards us and/or climbing, it would have finished its main vertical ascent so it would be roughly heading towards the point on the horizon where it would disappear, it is moving away from us.

Yes, I am assuming that that craft looks like it is rising and moving from the left to the right.
Confusing me here or am I being a thick? The SpaceX rocket should have been moving from the west to southwest, which is from the right to the left.

That's right, it was below West, moving South faster than it was moving East, therefore it was heading further away from us.

If it started from the West moving East faster than it was moving South it would be approaching us.

Airplanes approaching you appear to move upwards, airplanes moving away from you head downward toward the horizon otherwise they'd be off to Mars instead of maintaining altitude.

But not strictly true - if its heading away from you at greater than ninety degrees then it will still head towards the horizon..

Now stop confusing me DD. Everything will eventually head towards the horizon when moving away from you, regardless of °.

Yes, I didn't say anything like what I meant to say then I forgot what on earth I was on about. I won't bore you with it other than to say lines of perspective that pass over your head.
