Hey Space Placers!
In the VA-MD-DC (and entire Northern Hemisphere) viewing area the International Space Station (ISS) is putting on a great series of viewing opportunities. With the great weather we are enjoying in our area for the next couple of nights I highly recommend getting out to see the ISS. Some passes are very long - on the 14th a little after 10 pm there is a 6 minute pass that will be almost as bright as Venus, passing nearly overhead in our area.
Check out the following links: http://www.heavens-above.com/?lat=0&lng=0&alt=0&loc=Unspecified&TZ=CET (you put in your lat/long or pick your city) and http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/cities/view.cgi?country=United_States®ion=DC&city=Washington (you can oick another city besides DC).
I will be hoping to get a pic or two to share with you.....
