STAR WATCHING: International Space Station

Most cloudless nights, you can see a million stars with your naked eye and the man-made International Space Station.

A mother in Oregon told The New York Times,(quote) “The International Space Station flew over Portland on a clear night. We had six minutes of watching it stream across the sky.”

NASA developed a website for amateur star gazers to track the path of astronauts. Approximately every 90-minutes the International Space Station takes another trip around the world. 

Scott's Thoughts:

  • This week is a full, super-moon. It’s closest to earth making it appear larger than normal.
  • With all the kids home from school, we all need the advice of a teacher on how to keep children occupied and engaged.
  • A silver lining to a downturn in commerce is that there’s less light pollution and the stars are more easily visible.
  • In our lifetime, astronauts will return to the moon. And then step foot on Mars.
