ISS Visible

Today was cooler than normal, but mild compared to this past weekend. We reached an afternoon high of 44 after a morning low of 27. The winds were much more relaxed than over the weekend too.
Yet another freeze warning is in effect for the area tonight. This should be the last night with sub-freezing temperatures until next fall. I think that was said once before though and look what happened.
The International Space Station was visible tonight. It will be visible for the next several nights. You can find out when by clicking here.
A former Microsoft executive, Charles Simonyi, paid $20million to the Russian government in order to travel to the space station. You can read a CNN article here. You can read Charles Simonyi's blog here. The blog is quite interesting with live video conferences.
