I don't know how many of you are stargazers but here's a couple of links to track the Space Shuttle Endeavour docked with the International Space Station as it orbits our wee planet.

If you can catch this going overhead, and you're fortunate enough for it to happen just before/after dawn or sunset, it's an amazing sight.
Several missions back, the local TV weatherman advised what time and from what direction it would pass over Nashville. Sure enough, I went outside got my bearings and waited. Saw it passing from SW to NE from horizon to horizon, one hell of a reflection as it was still in sunlight at altitude versus my being in dusk on the ground. 17,500 miles looks REAL fast from the ground!
