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.

We saw it!!!!!! Yay!!! It was hard to spot as it was still light in the west. As it got mid sky I saw a flash of light and then we were able to keep our eyes on it and follow it.
