In a quest for more information following yesterday's tragic Space Shuttle disaster, I visited NASA's site (something I've been meaning to do for ages).
I hadn't really taken too much interest in the International Space Station. Sure, I knew it was up there somewhere and I remember hearing that it was visible to the human eye on certain occasions, but I never got round to investigating further.
Well, since yesterday, I've seen it whizzing across the night sky on 3 occasions. Believe me, it's a real buzz. This is how you can see it too.
This page is a fairly comprehensive listing of major Cities around the globe. It lists time and date, duration of sighting, maximum elevation, compass point and elevation of approach and compass point and elevation of departure.
If your particular location isn't included, click on the NASA Skywatch link to enter your exact geographical details. I live in Norwich, some 100 odd miles from London, but just to give you an idea, I am using London's details and it's pretty much the same for Norwich.
Check it out and enjoy.
Space exploration must continue. It would be an insult to the memory of the seven heroic pioneers who lost thier lives yesterday, if it does not.
