clear skies.....


Recommended Posts

For a few evenings this coming week, people who look up at the right time should be able to glimpse a high-speed space chase: the shuttle Discovery pursuing and finally capturing the International Space Station.


The station, an orbiting laboratory whose first section was launched in 1998, will flit across the night sky over much of the United States several times during the next week. Barring clouds, its glint of reflected sunshine will be easy to spot, even with the naked eye.

Once, I was able to see the shuttle, without the aid of binoculars or a telescope.

It was as announced on the local news, roughly 7am, clear sky, seems it was moving east to west, and that thing was really moving.


Pretty cool and I was surprised that it could be seen during the day.

3-2-1 blastoff.

Looks like clear skies and so far so good.



Tried to see it here in Jax. I've seen it before. It looks like it's actually moving across the sky. Did't see sh*t today and skies were relatively clear. :D
