I like Heavens Above for this, for me the times are:

Date Mag Start Highest point End
24 Mar - 18:49:24 10° SW 18:52:35 42° SSE 18:55:48 10° E visible
24 Mar -3.9 20:25:54 10° W 20:29:17 90° E 20:29:28 79° E visible

The first is in bright twilight and may not be visible. The second goes almost overhead and dissappears into the Earth's shadow shortly after it is overhead.

The very bright object in the SW is the planet Venus, it is currently about half phase so looks D shaped. Decent binoculars may show this.

Nah: Missed the first one: patchy high cloud. Got the odd glimpse of Venus: Will try later

Thanks for the reminder -- I forgot to get out last night, but Wednesday/Thursday look good if the weather holds … (I used to consult https://spotthestation.nasa.gov/sightings/ regularly, but got out of the habit.)

Just as a reminder, this site is great for telling you what these things will be visible.

We have a bit of CAVOK travelling N-> S but I suspect that it won't be far enough S in the next 15 mins for the ISS

Not a chance!
