The space station will be visible moving over Florida at 8:45 pm starting in the southwest and moving towards the north. It will only be visible for 5 minutes, so get on out there a little early and take a look. The sunset will give it a golden glow.

I heard about this ahead of time and then promptly forgot and did not see squat.

I saw it late last year from the tucson mountains, looked like a small star moving a little faster than an airplane.

I saw it very well last night here in FL. It's been a couple of years since I last saw it,and was amazed how much easier it was to see since they've added some component's to it.

Saw it perfectly from Jax. last night. It was as clear as the shuttle launch during the last Beacon Run.

I saw it last year from here in Las Vegas. Actually, it was two things, the shuttle and the space station. They weren't docked together so you could see both of them distinctly.
With the naked eye?.

Like this, pops .... of course this is a time-exposure (note that the 2 tracks are overlapping) - but, not to interfere with Otie's question but, yeah you can see them 'naked-eye' - there's just two instead of one (moving across the sky). How far apart they appear depends on how far apart they are, obviously.

The "double fly-by" is, IMO, so cool looking, because the two things moving at the same speed kind of form in your brain a "line segment", with lights on each end. That is a trip simply because of the scale of the "object".

here's a better pic:

I thought this thread might be about Floridians rising up and smoking pot all at once.... Kind of a "F" you to the laws there...
