How cool is this? To celebrate the 12th anniversary of astronauts living and working on the International Space Station, NASA is launching a new service to alert people when they can see the orbiting lab from their backyard!
Sign up at Spot the Station and they will email or text you with a few hours’ warning when the station can be seen from Earth. NASA says, “It looks like a fast moving point of light, similar to Venus, and is typically visible at dawn or dusk, when the moon is the only brighter object visible in the sky.”
I’m signing up right now!
