reader John West shot NASA up on the opportunity to observe the International Space Station fly over Alabama Friday night, and he caught that this cool 60-second exposure of it streaking over Madison in 9:20 p.m.. That is the Big Dipper into the left of the track of the station.

You’ll have two good chances to see the station fly across the Huntsville region, if you’re in North Alabama tonight. It’s the third-brightest thing in the heavens and easy to spot knowing where and when to look.
