"Not sure, but swans sure has us all trained. On 12/1 about 6:30 my 4 yr old said Look Space Station daddy, and sure enough blazing across the sky was what looked like the space station. I think it may have been a satelite. Maybe that's what you saw last night 12/3??

thanks again swans! "

Charlie:

Seven months ago you posted this comment made by your 4 year old child - "Look Space Station, Daddy," and I have never forgotten those words for a moment since. If for no other reason, posting ISS sighting opportunities for a special little child to see and wonder about is well worth it. Those are our astronauts and scientists of the future; they fulfill hopes and dreams for all of us and generations to come.

You and your family will be missed. ISS (USVI) will lose a very special family, indeed.

I want to wish you every happiness and joy in moving to beautiful Kentucky and may all dreams come true. And I wish to extend to you my deepest thanks and appreciation for your interest in ISS. "She sure is pretty, isn't she?"

Keep your eyes on the sky above; some day you may witness that which your own child contributed in launching, whether orbiting Earth or voyaging beyond our galaxy.

My very best to you and yours,
Swan

Swans, great words and thanks! You don't even know the extent of your goodness!

She "grew up" anxiously waiting for the passage of the ISS, as per your announcements. Once after seeing the ISS, we went inside and she had her exposure to "ET". It scared the S$%T out of her that for 1 yr she was terrified of anything Space. Man, we couldn't even watch Buzz Lightyear in Toystory....She kinda shyed away from space events and tv until the day she looked up and saw what we thought must have been the ISS flying over St. Croix. unannounced, at least by her dad. Since then, she keeps a look to the skys.

You made at least this one little impact on a young mind. Great Works!

For sure, friends, I will be checking vimovingcenter to keep up with all you kind folks.

I'm not saying gone forever, just for a stint as least.

as we say in STX...Raspects!
