International Space Station Flyover TONIGHT

I'm a huge astronomy buff (hence the ultra-realistic sci-fi setting of my book Embassy), so astronomy and space-related posts will pop up on this blog every now and then along with my writing advice and book posts.

Tonight at 9:10 p.m. EST (approximately 20 from now), the International space station will be flying over North America. It will be visible for 6 minutes, approaching from the Southwest and heading toward East-Northeast.

If you live in North America, keep an eye out for it! It'll be the brightest thing in the sky and moving VERY fast.

Here's a fast fact for ya: there are currently only 6 people in space right now.
Seems surprisingly low, huh?
