outer space fun


I just heard a story on NPR which said that for the next 2 weeks it will be easy to spot the international space station with your binoculars at night! Go here to find out what time it will be in your area.

P.S. I got the space station photo from LibraryThing. This is the caption: NASA Astronaut Steven Swanson took the Firefly and Serenity DVDs with him on Space Shuttle Atlantis' STS-117 mission, which lifted off on Friday, June 8, 2007. The DVDs will permanently reside on the International Space Station as a form of entertainment for the station's crews.

How cool would it be to watch Firefly in space?!

SO COOL!!! Not just Firefly, really, watching anything in Space would be super cool! Thanks for the note about the Space Station, I'm not much of a stargazer but I'll see if I can spot it!

I should have read your blog a couple of days ago - I had 6 minutes to see it yesterday. A bit too late today and I've got 1 minute to see it tomorrow!! But thanks for posting the link - I'll keep checking in case the duration improves...got to be up well before light though !!
