Would You Like to See the Space Station Fly Over?

Not many people are aware that you can actually see the International Space Station (ISS) when if flies over us. With a good pair of binoculars you can even see the sections and solar panels! The first time I watched it from a lawn chair in the back yard I was amazed!

My favorite ISS tracking site is Heavens Above , where you can login and enter your location. The site will give you a schedule of the times, location coordinates, magnitude, and maximum declination of the flyovers. The best times are early evening (just after dusk) and early morning (before dawn) as it will be dark but the ISS will be reflecting sunlight brightly.

Two additional national winners (one male and one female) are each awarded a $5,000 college scholarship. 

Young Epidemiology Scholars (YES) Competition: the YES Competition is a fun and challenging nationwide scholarship competition open to high school juniors and seniors. Students submit original research projects using the methods that epidemiologists employ to discover ways to improve the health of the public. Epidemiology is the scientific method used to investigate, analyze and prevent or control a health problem in a population. Students can win one of 120 scholarship awards ranging from $1,000 to $50,000. For more information, visit Young Epidemiology Scholars Competition.
