Hey Space Placers!
First time I have done two posts in one day! But I wanted to make sure that US readers were aware that the International Space Station (ISS) is flying over the US this week early in the evening. I watched a GORGEOUS -3.2 magnitude (Bright!) flyby last night while the beautiful Full Moon was rising......it was all very wonderful.
ISS is the brightest object in the night sky except for the Moon so it is easy to spot. Check the following sites for info in your area:
http://www.heavens-above.com/ You have to specify your viewing area. This is a complete site for all things flying overhead.
Easier to use: http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/cities/skywatch.cgi?country=United+States
Wave as nearly 1 million pounds of spacecraft and 6 astronauts and 1 robot fly by!
