Daniel posted a wonderful video "tour" of ISS under the topic "Science anyone." Very interesting and informative. Thank you Daniel!

ISS has a six member crew aboard. They appreciate and enjoy being remembered by all of us down here.

Thank you so much, Buck. ISS loves to show off, especially when displayed against the indescribable beauty of the Caribbean night sky above the breathtakingly gorgeous US Virgin Islands.
Enjoy!

YAY that was really cool. lost it in the clouds at the end. My four year old had no real interest. My 2 year old kept saying hi space ship while waving(so cute). Thank you swan. I started a thread about star viewing on stx a few months a go and several people mentioned they missed you. So thank you for the updates. My family will be on the look out friday night as well.
