Seeing the Space Station

You might be able to see the ISS with the Nekkid Eye.

We did.

Here's the prediction for the next 5 days for Boise, Idaho:

18 Aug - NW - 21:49
19 Aug - WNW - 22:12
20 Aug - WSW - 22:34
21 Aug - WNW - 21:22
22 Aug - WSW - 21:44

You'll have to go to the website and register if you want the data for your town.
It's pretty simple and painless.

Heavens Above

Some observations on our observations:

Aug 18 - Surprisingly good view, considering it was very cloudy all afternoon.

Aug 19 - Got to see Two for the price of one! The Space Shuttle had separated from the ISS and was following about '3 fingers' behind. Very Cool.

Aug 20 - Still very light because the sun had just gone down but we were easily able to pick it out of the sky.

I've been offered a free firearms training course at Front Sight in exchange for posting these links.
Since I've already taken one of their excellent courses, I jumped at the chance to get a free one.
