The International Space Station

I just came in from the backyard where I watched the International Space Station go by. Andy called me from work to let me know it would be passing our area. If you’ve never viewed it before, it looks like a bright star hauling ass across the sky. You can find out when the ISS will be visible in your area by clicking here and looking for the city closest to you. It will give the exact times and direction to look for the space station. It really is a neat thing to see it going overhead and to think that humans put it there. Kind of awe-inspiring. Check it out if you get a chance.

    Srini, it is white, not green. You prbably did see a meteor. It doesn’t move nearly as fast as a meteor either, it takes a couple of minutes to make it across the sky.
