I am completely spoiled now. I have seen the International Space Station (ISS) and the space shuttle in trail, on a cloudless clear night. They crossed the dome of the sky, traveling NW-SE, about a 3 minute track across the sky. A recent Touch app alerted me to it. It predicts when, where, and at what intensity the ISS will cross the sky in your area. By a stroke of good fortune, the space shuttle was disengaging from the ISS after a weeklong (or so) attachment. Wow. As I said, spoiled.
