the space station

Tonight, the space station passed through the sky in our neck of the woods. We had to be outside at 7:57 in order to see it for 3 minutes and 56 seconds. We left the house at 7:53 or so after deciding to drive to the outskirts of town so we could see it better or at least increase our chances of seeing it at all. I thought I saw it, so I had Kyle pull over and WE TOTALLY FOUND IT!! We saw most of it's flight across our sky. It was really cool. It supposed to be in the sky again tomorrow at 8:23. Maybe we'll try to see it again....

that sounds cool. what exactly could you see? Did it look like a bright star or could you tell that it was something?

It was a bright light, way brighter than a star, but fainter than a plane. At first, we thought it was a plane, because it was moving so fast. But we only saw it for about 3-4 minutes, so we figured that it had to be the space station.

yeah, it's neat. apparently, almost anyone can see it as some point: Find it in your sky. Everyone needs to do this.
