Just now I saw Envisat for the first time! Since I first wrote the satellite tracker I've looked for it a few times, but until this evening I'd never actually spotted it. It was about magnitude 3 (according to Heavens Above) so it was pretty faint in the omni-present Mancester glow, but it was definitely there, passing from South to North, through Lyra and past Vega before passing over the roof of the house. :-)
