Did you know you can see the International Space Station from your house? As the third brightest object in the sky, after the sun and moon, the space station is easy to see if you know where and when to look for it.
Mark Grow already knew this. He submitted the attached photo of the Space Station over Temecula this morning.
"The white line is the station moving over Temecula from the northwest to the southwest," he said. "The picture is a 15-second exposure as the station came across the sky at 5:57 a.m. (local)."
NASA has an email service that sends notifications as to when the station will pass over your area, he told Patch. Click here to sign up for the service.
Although the photo has not been verified by NASA, Patch is taking Grow's word that it's legitimate. He's been a fire captain-paramedic in Lakeside, Calif., since 1981, so we're trusting him. Thanks Mark.
