    Icon Simultaneously See the Space Shuttle & Space Station

    This weekend, if you're in the USA or Southern Canada, you might be able to see both the ISS and Space Shuttle in the sky at the same time.

    Quote from article:

    What makes this weekend's prospective passages so interesting is that you'll be able to see the two largest orbiting space vehicles in the sky at the same time.
    After liftoff from Florida, Shuttle Discovery will spend nearly 44 hours chasing the International Space Station around the Earth, ultimately catching up and docking with it around 11:25 a.m. EDT on Monday, if all goes as planned.
    Type in your local here and see when to look up!

    And, if you've got a big telescope, you might see this:

    I really hope the weather doesn't delay the launch. This would be very cool.

    I was able to watch the first space shuttle mission return (minus tha actual landing) from my back yard and recall seeing Skylab in it's penultimate orbit (both with naked eyeballs).
