The Space Shuttle & International Space Station will both be flying over New Orleans this evening at approximately 6:22 pm. The shuttle was docked to the space station until about 3:30 this morning when they undocked, but are still flying in fairly close orbit. Sunset is 5:51 pm and skies are clear, so get up on your roof and keep your eyes peeled. Both should be fairly high in the sky, brighter than the stars, and moving fast.
Also; total lunar eclipse coming up Wednesday night.
ADDENDUM:::::: Dude, brah, that shit was KILLAH!!! Space shuttle was like 45 miles ahead of space station. USA! USA! Astronauts! Michoud assembly facility! How often do you get the chance to see the shuttle and the station tailing each other directly overhead? RARELY.
