Spot the Space Station!

For the past few years we've watched the
International Space Station
from our own backyard.
It looks like a star, but it's moving across the sky.

To see exactly when the space station will be visible where you live then go here.
You'll enter your country, and if you live in the US you'll enter your state,
and then your city (or the city that you're closest to).

Here's part of the info for when the space station will be visible in Orem, UT

Here's a little video clip of what it looks like in the sky (though it moves much slower than this) :

One year the shuttle was following the space station so it could dock and we could see two "stars" moving across the sky. It was amazing!!
