International Space Station to Eclipse Jupiter Thur. night

If you live along a narrow swath that stretches from Alabama to Maine, you might get to see the international space station go right in front of Jupiter between 9:30 and 9:39 on Thursday (May 13)night.

If you live anywhere on the East coast, you will probably enjoy looking at the space station go by, even if it just goes near Jupiter, instead of in front of it.

Here is a NASA page that tells all about it.

Also on that page are a couple great images of the ISS taken by people with telescopes in their back yard. This is something I am definitely going to try to do this summer, while I am babysitting the Thorp's 8" Celestron telescope.
