    Two month's ago I was sitting in the hottub, and I saw this bright light slowly travel across the sky.

    As soon as I got in the house I googled the Space Station to see if that was what I had just witnessed.  Sure enough...it was!

    So, for the past two months, I have been going to the website link below to find out what nights are viewable...tonight's was the most amazing so far.

    Just thought I'd share this beauty with everyone else:

      Around 1970 I was on a ship in the tropics tracking the hundreds of satellites for communication and spying that were being fired up there. We got to find around ten or twelve every night as I recall.  It was cool at first, but after a month of nights it was just bright lights in the sky, again.

      The website is great. You can find out where and when to watch it by putting in a location. Cool! smile

    that is awesome, very special!

    sometimes even though on the west coast of Fl, we can see the light in the sky at lift-off on a cloudless day and hear it when it reenters the earths atmosphere, as it comes in with a loud bang.
