Always keeping an eye to the sky, ran across this:
The International Space Station may be viewed at various times this week beginning Monday, January 4, 2010, in the early evenings across North America. For exact times and dates at your location visit SpaceWeather Satellite Flybys and enter your zip code. Dress warmly if your skies are clear even if the flyby is but a little more than 2-minutes. Encourage several friends to take interest in the ISS in 2010 – the final year of space shuttle flights to the ISS. via http://spaceports.blogspot.com/search?updated-min=2010-01-01T00%3A00%3A00-05%3A00&updated-max=2011-01-01T00%3A00%3A00-05%3A00&max-results=4
And the text reads-
|US and Canadian readers, enter your zip code below, hit Go!, and you will find out what is going to fly over your area in the nights ahead. There are hundreds of satellites in Earth orbit; we cut through the confusion by narrowing the list to a half-dozen or so of the most interesting. At the moment we are monitoring a number of spy satellites, space shuttle Atlantis, the International Space Station, and the Hubble Space Telescope. Feedback is welcomed.|
You will probably have to click on the link http://www.spaceweather.com/flybys/index.php?PHPSESSID=4le8abpoqcaldu3ejijn1anjk2 for access but definitely interesting.
NASA also offers viewing locations at http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/sightings/index.html
NASA is offering a 2010 calendar that describes the work being done on the International Space Station and gives information about the crews that have lived there. The calendar contains photographs taken from the space station and highlights historic NASA milestones and fun facts about the international construction project of unprecedented complexity that began in 1998 via http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/main/index.html
Keep looking up!
