We 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.
