Totally off topic. Our other hobby, viewing the International Space Station

International Space Station
Whenever the ISS is going overhead between 9-midnight, Allan and I run out into our backyard or onto the street depending which part of the sky it will be appearing in. If you go to the NASA site, you can put your location in, and find out when it's going to be visible. If you have an iphone or ipad, you can download the NASA app free. It is REALLY cool. Much brighter than a star and moves across the sky fast enough that you can find it among the stars.
In Sidney we will have great viewing from now until August 29. Enjoy.
