Space on the brain
It's been a good week for Space Station (ISS) spotters.
The International Space Station
Thanks to the very helpful NASA sightings page, I've been able to walk out the front door and see the bright objects race across the sky, lit by the rising sun. I say "objects", plural, because this morning the ISS had a follower; the Progress 46P supply rocket. It was about 5-10 degrees behind the ISS, far less bright, on the same orbit path. It's well worth the effort to rise a bit early on a clear autumn morning to watch.
