    Good chance to see it tonight at a sensible time

    Just go outside around 7:39pm face South, look up at an angle of about 45 degrees and it should cross from West to East, it will be a bright white light moving steadily, it should be visible for about 4 minutes

    There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar: I love not man the less, but Nature more...

    Saw the space station last night but only because I was marveling at the moon rising in the sky and just for good measure, I went out this morning to watch the moon setting again.
    Optical illusion or not, I still say that it is bigger when it is lower in the sky

    I finally managed to see the ISS last night.

    And yes, the moon was more impressive this morning than it was last night!
