    #468698 - 08/28/10 12:33 AM (6 years, 3 months ago)

So I just seen the international space station pass through the sky unexpectedly.
it was like an enormous star that was speeding like a meteor and was only visible for like 3 minutes. Orbiting at 17,256mph about 220 miles above earths surface

it was amazing.:vaped:

crazy stuff.

I can see multiple satellites each night if I take a peek.

Are you sure it wasn't just a plain ole satty?

If you ever get the chance to see the ISS
there is no way you can mistake it for anything else

Much brighter than Venus and faster than an airplane :awebig:

nah theres no mistake, I was told by multiple people, and then looked it up and found a couple pages on it, I would go through NASA and look up the route but that would take time and effort and your in a different area anyway.

Thats bad ass  :awesome:

I wish I lived in an more rural area. I just love going up north or
whatever and looking at the sky. Back in the day it was everyday shit
but for a lot of us that live in or around a major city its that much
more of a spectacular sight.

You mean like this?

Also, you think that would be visible in a town of 9000, or would I probably have to go out to the country?

I kinda want to see it, I never have. :confused:

I would bet that you could see the ISS in the daytime
(since its brighter than Venus and Venus can be seen in the daytime)

So I don't believe that there is any city bright enough to prevent seeing it

you know what i did in english class? I came to class stoned out of my mind every day, i chugged vodka in the back of class, i put dead fish in the ceiling tiles. i put a gallon of old milk and orange juice in the file cabinet before winter vacation. i brought snakes in a tied up sweater and let them loose during class. i didnt go to school to learn, i went because i had to. i didnt care, and i didn't fucking listen to that stupid bitch. and i still don't fucking care. i tore the pages out of her books and burned them, and threw away all the books in the class, two books per day.  :twobooks:

Yeah, I was in the middle of the city. It was bright and reddish and was moving faster than a plane. I only saw it for maybe 10 seconds. I was trying to figure out what it was, then my view was obscured by a building.
