10:15 p.m. It was an incredible sight and the space shuttle has in fact caught up to and docked with the international space station. It was confirmed with one huge bright shining object that looked even brighter than the planet Jupiter as it crossed the sky. This is a good thing for the ISS since the shuttle Discovery has a new robotic arm for its use. Discovery also has the tools to fix the broken bathroom on the ISS. :) My camera did not do a good job catching this. If you have any pictures send them in!
The two space ships went over on cue from 9:59 p.m. to 10:03 p.m.
Now back to reality...I am checking on the thunderstorms for the 11 p.m. show.
The International Space Station passes overhead at 9:57 p.m. 20 degrees above the horizon in the north-northwest sky and will be followed by the Space Shuttle chasing after it at 9:59 p.m. and the Shuttle will be visible until 10:03 p.m. as these spaceships both race out of view off to the east. I am getting ready to go on the roof. This will be a nice relaxing break from the storms that is for sure!
