Mars and Uranus getting closer each night. Wednesday 13th closest and Mars in conjunction with Uranus: only 58.6' separated. Handheld iPhone pic at eyepiece.
At dusk, ISS only 10 degrees high (and cloud ridge), 0.2 mag at culmination. Above, plane and 30% Moon with Mars, 6.1 degrees apart and with clouds. iPhone pics.

iPhone pic of Mars at eyepiece of 70 Travelscope. Uranus not in shot, but rather closed to Mars.
Iridium 58, predicted mag -8.5, at kind of day time (Sun -6 only) and through clouds. Not bad for an iPhone pic.
Very bright ISS pass 18h44, nearly parallel, less than 2 mins behind triple bright flashing “object”.
The brighter flash was similar, mag -3, the less brighter flash, mag -1 to -2 and the fainter flash mag 0 or +1. Just rough estimates. Approx similar speed, not quite parallel track. Looked like observed and images at various locations in UK (Twitter).
From Marco Langbroek: It is Telkom 3 (2012-044A), a satellite launched in 2012 that ended up in a wrong orbit. Obviously, per your observations, it is now tumbling. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telkom-3
CET times for Tissington from Marco Langbroek
Another ISS pass same night. Low on the horizon. No other flashes observed so low, disposed parts, ... Only flashing car lights this time, and a stalking plane.
Another "candidate" for the tumbling flashes could have been the Tumbling Iridium Yaogan 6. Not quite the same track though. From CalSky.
At 6h32m it was the emersion of Saturn, Altitude 0.2° only, Moon phase 6.0%, 61.2 hours before New Moon. Could catch just after occultation. iPhone pic through Celestron Travel Scope. At 06h38m Iridium 97, predicted magn -4.8. Very cold, -4 degrees C, wobbly images - all iPhone pics
In the morning crescent Moon in between Venus and Jupiter. Moon separation from Jupiter is 3.6° and from Venus 4.3°. All iPhone pics
Lovely view of crescent Moon between Venus and Jupiter
Crisp freezing evening, -4 degrees C. In one frame barely, left to right, Iridium 45 (predicted mag 1), Cosmos 1869 (predicted mag 3.4) and ISS (predicted mag -3.5). iPhone pic 3.5 min.
Remember in the morning tomorrow, crescent Moon between Venus and Jupiter. This morning iPhone pic through clouds.
