Smile Any star-gazers out there? I just saw the ISS!

I know, it isn't a star, but.... I saw the International Space Station for the first time ever tonight! It was amazing!! I'm going to have to make this a regular thing, it was so cool. Anyone else out there a star gazer, and ISS fan?

Thank you for the links. I'm going to watch for it the next 3 nights here. I haven't seen it before, everytime I hear about it it's always the morning after.

I get the "Spot the Station" email sent to me. It's so cool!

I love the stars, I will check out the ISS any time I can. I can also point out a few different constellations - I would love to learn more!

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

That's cool.

I don't know if I've seen the ISS or not. Have seen satellites frequently. Hoping to get to see some of the meteor shower this weekend.

I can't wait to check it out again! I went out about 8:25 last night, it was so incredible!

The meteor shower was something else I wanted to see, but I slept too late.

Clouds and rain here for a couple days, so no more viewing the ISS for now...

Anyone have any luck seeing it?
