Star Gazing

Well, not exactly gazing at stars, but if you didn't know what you were looking at, you might think they were stars. Mr. H, our 2 younger girls (M & L) and I just stood out in the yard looking at space hardware. First we saw Jules Verne, the space truck that resupplies the space station. Then we saw the shuttle, and finally the International Space Station.

It was really neat to see them moving silently, steadily across the sky, then disappear into the shadow cast by the earth. You can find more info here. Look for the Triple Flyby Alert. has lots of neat stuff.

  1. correction: I don't think the 2nd thing we saw was Endeavor. When we saw the ISS, the shuttle had just undocked and was probably still too close for them to be seen separately. Must have been some other satellite.
