Default Anyone see the space shuttle in the sky tonight?

Should be visible for some Americans tomorrow as well. I was rather skeptical that one would be able to see it or even tell what it was but I was pleasantly surprised. It was quite obvious that it was the shuttle which was followed by the space station about 20 seconds later. It was pretty impressive how bright they were. There must be an insane amount of light hitting the shuttle. Watching them disappear into the earth's shadow was wasn't too shabby either. The weatherman said it would fly over between 10:55 and 11 and he was dead on accurate.

I wish I had known about that. I am not an astronomy buff or anything, but that would have been cool to see.

Check http://spaceflight1.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/ to see when the space station/shuttle will pass by your area.

Caught this last night...pretty cool. The shuttle was about 30 seconds or so "behind" the space station, but they were definitely visible in the sky at the same time. Venus, Saturn and Jupiter were all out, as well.
