Twinkling stars, the full moon, an amber-colored Mars … an endless variety of celestial phenomena dazzles from above each night. Another bright, orbiting body, though not as ancient as the planets, also elicits wonder and delight.
The International Space Station — a spacecraft home and research center for astronauts — blinks a path in the night sky on its journey around the earth. Moving thousands of miles an hour, it is faster than a moving plane and yet visible from various locations for those who know when and where to look.
