Space Station Assembly Instructions

Pretty cool graphic/animation out from “USA Today.”  I never quite grasped just how large and intricate the ISS is.  The link below is a beautifully done graphic of the Space Station’s growth over the years.

It’s so big, no wonder we can sometimes see it from earth with the naked eye!

    The next few nights provide some pretty good visible passes. Be on the look out behind it for the recently launched 34 Progress (russian supply ship). Also Endeavour should undock on the 28th so we may get a pass or two with the Shuttle trailing. By the way is a great sight for not just ISS passes but any visible sats or even spent rocket stages.

    I didn’t know we can see it from earth sometimes. I will have to be on the lookout for it in the future.
