Okay. What I saw was the ISS, time of observation matches within two minutes of what they list on heavens above. The direction of travel and azimuth was a match also.
I guess they added a lot of modules to ISS since the last time I saw it several years ago,, it looked a lot bigger. I guess that could be because of the amount of reflection I was seeing vs the first sighting.

Oh well, thanks to all.

Just makes you wonder now, how many sightings actually are just the ISS and other satellites. Probably a great deal.

Now I'm no expert by any means but I had seen the ISS before and yet I was convinced what I saw last night wasn't the ISS.

It's good to know however, that if I do see anything similar again I can check whether it's the ISS using that very useful website.

Thanks all!

It does make you wonder, but I suspected that what I was looking at was a satellite of some sort, due to the fact that it traveled in a straight line and did dim out as traveled towards the NNE.
If it had did any kind of maneuvers, my camera would have been out, taking pics.

Thank you you so so much for solving this for me. I was about to do a thread on this but thought I'd better check first. Me and my other half were scratching our heads as to what it was. We figured it was a satellite of some sort, it just seemed too bright (as bright as Venus) from the normal satellite's we'd observed. He initially thought it was a plane but I pointed out there was no usual blinky lights.

Spotted it yesterday and today (5/5/2010 and 6/5/2010) at 22.40ish and 21.25ish respectively heading across Canterbury, Kent.

Nice one on getting a video of it, my phone's camera is too poo to take anything decent

Edit: Just checked heavens-above for Canterbury and it pretty much matches with the times we saw. Another yummy website to add to faves
Thank you Phage

I am up the road in the Bay and it seems that we are often directly underneath its flightpath which is great for us
