Just watched the ISS International Space Station pass over. You can sign up for e mail alerts to notify you when it will pass over near you. Pretty cool, back in the Apollo days I would always watch the launches, later in school they would occasionally bring in TVs and let us watch some of the coverage.

We usually run out to see it.  We had a long 5 minute pass tonight.  Godspeed Peggy Whitson and the rest of the crew.

Driving to the rifle range, to shoot M1 Garands, I talked to Colonel Warlock onboard the ISS

they sent me a QSL card confirming the contact.

Times in UTC so you'll have to convert... but the site lists up coming launches and if they are live broadcast has links to where to watch them.

For instance Tuesday there will be a launch of supplies up to the ISS.

Also these websites are great resources for launch coverage and news.

I took a 30-second exposure shot of ISS as it flew over northeast Florida tonight.
