    Is this the ISS? Anybody know of any good websites to confirm or look this up based upon location?

    ALSO. If it were the ISS it would be moving. rapidly.
    You sure it's not Sirius?

    While outside last night - just checking to make sure Jupiter was still there - a perfect arc of a shooting star crossed the sky - COOL!

    Yep. I took a pic of it on October 13th when it was next to the moon.



    I took the low water crossing over the Trinity River during this morning's commute. As I was climbing out of the river channel, I was perfectly aligned to view Orion. The winter months are upon us.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Venus is up in the southwestern sky.

    Look for the brightest "non moving" thing and that will be it.

    Google Star Map is an app you might need.
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.
