Having done three public star parties (not to mention family and friends) during the final space shuttle mission, I was asked quite a few times if Atlantis or ISS would be visible in the sky. Unfortunately, as many of you probably knew, we had no visible nighttime passes of either station or shuttle for this mission. We had quite a few daylight flyovers, and I searched with binoculars during one of them, but the strong sunlight makes ISS nearly impossible to see. Nearly.
I saw this Discovery blog by Bad Astronomer Phil Plait posted on Facebook yesterday. It's awesome.
