Last night we watched the space shuttle & station fly over (about 200+ miles above) our house. Hubby was watching on the tracker to find out when we'd be able to see it and since it was so nice out, we sat outside watching.
You can go to http://www.n2yo.com/ and find out when it will be flying over YOUR area the next couple of nights. It just looks like a very bright star that's moving. It was pretty cool.
