    Yeah, I'm a Geek

    I just found a website that gives times and locations for viewing the International Space Station from the ground. It seems like there are a lot of weather/geography geeks around here... but do we have any astronomy/space science geeks?

    Well, I know what I'll be doing at 7:15p.m. tonight... I think I get a good NW view, but there may be too much light pollution.

    Great link nerudite, thanks!

    Our cub scout pack camped near Cape Canaveral last Sept. There was an astronomer in the next campsite and he showed us the International Space Station traversing the sky that night. It was fast! And cool to see it.
