During this spell of wonderful weather there have been favourable ISS passes in the evening sky. This image is of the ISS track with Venus shining brilliantly and the Pleiades above. There was clearly a little wobble at the beginning of the exposure as the track is not as straight as it should be!

Venus will be passing through the Pleiades in early April, which will present further imaging opportunities.
