Space Station spotting party! - It REALLY is incredible to see, right from your own yard. As the third brightest object in the sky, after the sun and moon, the space station is easy to see if you know where and when to look for it." NASA’s Spot the Station service sends you an email or text message a few hours before the space station passes over your house. TREAT YOUR KIDS BY TAKING THEM OUTSIDE TO SEE THIS!

    My husband and I love to go out and see the station over head. My grown sons laugh at us. I told them when you live out the country you have to make your own entertainment. We are in southeastern Ohio. It is a beautiful sight!

1st Vine from space! Astronaut Reid Wiseman took this video from the International Space Station. It shows a single Earth orbit (would be about 90 minutes real time). The space station's orbit was parallel to the terminator, in which case the sun never sets. June 5, 2014.

    Thank you for posting these. Following what you were up to on the ISS reignited my childhood fascination with space, and now, at the age of 30, I decided to do something about it and joined a local astronomy group and really enjoy learning about space and everything in it. Thank you so much!

    Read your story, Karen. Thank you so much for sharing. Thank you for being real and genuine. It's easy to see others' successes and to think less of yourself, but you helped remind me that all people are people. You seem like a really awesome person, and I'm glad I got to read your words! Have a great rest of your time in the ISS! Almost finished!

    Such an amazing story. I had to share it with my family and friends. Thanks so much for taking the time to do it and share your experience.
