Niall is thrilled to see the satellite from his garden

Niall Horan is fascinated by the night sky.

The One Direction singer, 20, told his Twitter followers at the weekend how excited he was to spot the International Space Station from his home.

The International Space Station is an artificial satellite that circles Earth in low orbit and is used by crew as a laboratory, observatory and factory.

‘For the last few months I’ve been obsessed with the international space station ! Like a geek! Just stood in the garden,and seen it fly over,’ Tweeted Niall.

Niall is currently busy rehearsing for 1D‘s Where We Are stadium tour, which is set to begin in Bogota, Colombia on 25 April.

But he’s still had a bit of time to enjoy the sunny weather in London this week and Tweeted about going for bike rides on both Sunday and Monday.

‘Lovely evening for a cycle ! Deffo goin tonight,’ he wrote yesterday.
