Coolest Canadian on earth or space
With the video from astronaut Chris Hadfield going viral this past week with his You Tube video of the David Bowie song Space Odyssey you have probably seen this video from a Facebook friend or some other source by now. Reminds how I wish the United States could be more like our neighbors up north.
Everyone should try to see the Space Station goes overhead. It is by far the coolest sight in our night sky. The photo above from the "nightskyguy.com" shows what the Station will look like in the skyYou can see it at its brightest this upcoming Monday and Tuesday mornings starting at 4:55 am on Monday for 6 minutes. Tuesday is a little earlier starting at 4:08 am. Look to the west south west at 10 degrees above the horizon. The Space Station will move almost overhead as it pasts to the northeast part of the sky. It will look like a very bright large star moving in direct line across the sky. I have seen it sometimes as not just as a round shape by a short line. This depends on the angle of the Station as it pasts. Binoculars make it easier to see the shape of the Space Station.
