Skywatching


We've been watching the ISS passing over us for the past few nights. It's amazing to consider that there are six people 230 miles above us orbiting the earth at 17,000 MPH.  Read about the ISS HERE, and you can use this site or this one to see when it is visible near you.









We are also looking forward to viewing the Quadrantids. With a new moon, they should be spectacular! More information here.


Watching Venus set just after sundown.





 The sunsets have been spectacular, and this is the time of year we can watch it from the front porch.




or the warmth of the living room
