Watching the 5:00 news yesterday evening there was a short blurb about something that was going to happen that evening. At around 9:52 that night the space station was going to be flying over our area area. The sky was to be cloudless so it should be visible.
Well, about 9:50 Kathy and I decided to go out and look. We stood on the porch careful not to step into the driveway or else the motion lights would kick on. We looked, but the sky was not clear. Oh well.
The station was to travel from NW to SE. We stood gazing NW. Nothing. Suddenly, there it was. A bright white dot piercing the black sky.
We watched as it quickly moved across the sky.
As it passe over our house we moved to the front lawn to continue watching its progress. Here it is seemingly above the moon. There was also a plane in the sky.
The station continued on its path leaving the moon behind.
It then traveled behind a cloud leaving our sight. This is not the first time we have sen the space station travel over our area, but each time I see it I am left awed and amazed. Did anyone else see this?
For today’s humor.
