International Space Station Still Astounds Me

With nice clear weather last night I watched the International Space Station fly over my house.  It is not the first time I have seen it but each time I am just amazed.  To think there are six people operating a vehicle 215 miles above me traveling at over 17,000 MPH still boggles the mind.  I include a link which you can see the tracking map real time and on the page you can click on sighting opportunities and enter you location and get the exact time (this thing is always on schedule)  you will be able to simply go outside and see the thing with the naked eye.  Some good optical gear makes for a better experience but not necessary as the ISS is very bright in the sky.  Enjoy
