What's in your night sky?

SpaceWeather.com has a satellite tracker. It tells you when and where to view satellites in your night sky. How cool is that? Right now they're tracking a spy satellite Lacrosse 3, the International Space Station, the Hubble Telescope, and the Early Ammonia Servicer (a 1400 pound refrigerator-sized ammonia reservoir that the ISS astronauts threw out last year. Now that's taking littering to new heights.

Over my area?
You know my zip code? You have a map to my house? Am I so not funny? lol
I've got 41 flybys and next Wednesday my neighbors are going to be wondering what I'm doing in the front yard with binoculars at 10 pm. hahaha

Ha ha, that is what I get for cutting and pasting. :P Can you actually really see a satellite? That is kind of creepy. The spy ones, anyway.

Yep, but it is a lot faster and we know what is meant. I just have a strange sense of humor! *grin*
Who's watching the watchers? I think you need binoculars or a telescope to see the satellites.
