Space Station Sighting in No. California Tonight

SacsTC let me know that the Space Station would be flying over the Sacramento area tonight so I set my alarm! We were able to view it as it flew over Northern California tonight...
..He then mentioned to me as we were coming into the house that it would fly over one more time tonight. I thought I would share so that a few others might be able to see it if they like.
Here is some info about it from KCRA's website plus here is a link to NASA Viewings for Sacramento.

You can also goto THIS LINK and find your own state and city area to check viewings for your area!

I'll meet you outside tonight at 11:11pm!!

If you should see a shooting star in the vicinity, someone flushed and discharged the contents of the holding tank. The chit burns up in the atmosphere and is mistaken for a shooting star. This is Fact - Not Fiction.

I use a program called Oribtron to track several satellites. You choose which ones to track, ISS is on the list.

Neat program... .Turns your screen into something like what you see at NASA control centers.

http://www.n2yo.com/?s=33442 Here's the live tracking of the $100,000 tool bag. It's several thousand miles behind the space station and you need magnification to see it.
