Star light, star bright...

was that a space station I saw last night? Yesterday evening we got word that the International Space Station could be spotted overhead. So a little after 6pm we were standing outside looking towards the WSW and low and behold a very bright light appeared and moved elegantly across the evening sky. It was amazingly quiet and smooth and its flight for our viewing lasted about two minutes. It was exciting to know that while we stood poised in the backyard with our eyes towards the heavens, that there were people working, floating and talking on that bright light in the sky. We found out later too, that yesterday, November 20, was the Space Station's 10th anniversary. Happy anniversary and many more!
