Watch the International Space Station from your backyard

images1.jpegWe just went outside and watched the International Space Station and the latest space shuttle mission zoom over our house in the night sky. It is so fascinating to watch! First the ISS went by (it has a much brighter light), and then trailing it was the space shuttle, they both produce a bright, moving light and are hard to miss in the night sky. They appear to glide across the sky, it’s very different from a planes flight path.

To find out the EXACT time it will be flying over your house click here. Take the kids out and look for it, then check out the images of the space station online. It was great educational fun for us!

    Oh my husband and son would love to see this! I’ll have to check it out and see if we’ve already missed it or not. Thanks for the link!

    Our neighbor told us about this, and Mr. G and I caught a couple of views. Really cool to observe something so far away!
