My husband and I were watching the Perseids meteor shower and I noticed the space station. When it reached the sunshine edge it glowed sooooo neat. He was impressed. I have been in Canada and watching the stars up there you can see satellites go by every 25 min or so, and that is neat. I Never thought we would see the space station tho!!
I have seen the Northern Lights a couple of times in IL, and had a really kewl night when I was on that fishing trip in Canada. We were 50 miles from the nearest village, flew in on a Water plane.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.
