So, I do this thing. I go outside at night to spot satellites.
Tonight, I went out with my tea and a plan to spot at least one satellite, despite a wicked bright moon, before bed.
I spotted one right off. It was really bright, the brightest I’ve seen. And it was moving really fast, too fast to be a plane. I yelled for Quinn and told him the International Space Station was passing by.
We waved at the astronauts, I spotted another three satellites (one flared twice!), and we called it a night after the kids yelled at us.
If you want to see the ISS, check here. Spot the station will give you times it will pass overhead!
