View Space Shuttle From Earth

For all you space buffs...this is pretty cool...

On November 14, the space shuttle Endeavor blasted off on a new mission to deliver supplies and equipment to the International Space Station. Depending on your location on the Earth's surface, the spacecraft's position in orbit and the time of day, you may be able to see either the shuttle or International Space Station (ISS), or both, as they orbit about 240 statute miles above the planet. NASA has all the details on their site:

Sighting opportunities section will be on the left side of the web page - from there select country, state  and then city for a detailed listing of possible sighting times. Due to cloudy weather here recently, I haven't been able to spot it, but I still have a few more days.
