Space Station Soars over Vestal

Sci-Fi movies show a lot of space stations circling planets--
and while you could have seen that sort of thing sitting around your TV Friday evening ---other folks were watching the real thing from a mountain top in Vestal.  At the Kopernic Observatory and Science Center,  they got a glimpse of the International Space Station passing overhead-- and still visible despite the clouds that were closing in.
How was that for a lawn party?

"The space station passes overhead everyday. Some days we see it some days we don't. Right now we are a t a point where it's coming up in the early evening so just before 9 o'clock it should be over the horizon and we should see it for 5 to 6 minutes." - Andrew Deskur, Exectuive Director at the Kopernik Obseratory

The Kopernic holds frequent viewing nights and seminars on the wonders of the universe.
