Good view last night, could see it through the trees at the western end of my garden as soon as I stepped outside the back door.

It seemed to be moving more slowly than I recall from when last I saw it in 2007, presmably a sympton of advanced brain-fade rather than a higher orbit making any significant difference to the time taken to circumnavigate the earth.
