Watching the ISS flyover

Tonight we stood with a group of friends in a meadow outside of Lewisburg, Pennsylvania and watched the International Space Station (ISS) fly over. True to NASA’s website predictions for this location, the ISS appeared as a bright moving star on the NNW horizon at 20 degrees and for a little of 3 minutes made a low arc across the sky before disappearing on the SSE horizon.

It was fantastic! To think that six people were on board, fly 220 miles above us at a rate of 17,000 miles per hour. Photo at right was taken using my iPhone.
