Lost in Space

Last night we watched as the International Space Station roared overhead. I didn't take a picture because even with a 60 power spotting scope, it was still just a bright dot. It sure is a fast moving bright dot though. It crossed the entire night sky in about 5 minutes. That made it look more like a comet than a star or a planet. Pretty cool.

For those in the Salt Lake area, the planetarium has a nice calendar of what you can see and when at http://www.clarkplanetarium.org/astronomy_nightsky.php.
