ISS Fly By

I got an email this morning stating that the International Space Station will be visible flying by in the night sky here in Houston this week.  Have you ever seen it before?  It's pretty incredible.  You can't see detail or anything (at least not with the naked eye), but you see a streak of light across the sky, almost like a prolonged shooting star.  And it's so cool to think that it's actually a giant pressurized tube nearly the size of a football field flying through space with people in it!  You should check online to see when it's visible in your area:
