The International Space Station

April 28, 2013

Yay, thanks to the local TV station WTHR-TV13’s Facebook post on last Thursday night, I got to see the International Space Station passing over the sky here in central Indiana!  I mean the International Space Station is so far out in the space, so you can only see a bright light moving fast over the sky, but it was an amazing sight. I wish my children got to see it:-(  It was around 9:42p.m., so my girls were already in bed….

Anyway, I did some research and found out that NASA actually has a free service called spot the Space Station. This service will  notify you of “good” sighting chance of the International Space Station in your area. I’ve immediately signed up:-) I am hoping that my girls can join me next time to spot the Space Station. I think this is a fun and a very educational activity for any children/adults. The best part of this activity is that it’s FREE! If you are interested in spotting the International Space Station from your backyard, try visiting for more information. Good luck!

  1. We were able to see it last summer. Even though it was just a bright dot in the sky, I am so glad we stayed up to see it. Watching that dot, thinking that people were actually up there, was just surreal.
