No prob, SC! Don't forget about this: http://novis.hq.nasa.gov/novis/ISSci...y=U%2ES%2EA%2EScroll down to click USA and then type in the city you live in. The site will give you the date and time that the ISS is passing overhead, always during the early morning or late evening. It appears as an extremely bright star just before it passes into the Earth's shadow and it's about three times brighter when the Shuttle is docked! It's very cool to see! Haven't checked it out for a long time, this would be a great opportunity to see it!

Try this: http://novis.hq.nasa.gov/novis/ISSin...veland%2C%20OH

It'll be a few days before NASA can accurately forecast the flyover, keep checking on it! If you can, head out of Cleveland far enough to be able to see dark skies. The entire event is pretty brief but impossible to miss if you're looking towards the right direction at the right time!

9:49pm for me too. If you'd like to see where the ISS is in real-time check out http://science.nasa.gov/Realtime/JTr.../JTrack3D.html and click 'yes' when the prompt pops up. You'll get a 3-D model of where the ISS is. On the menu there will be 'View,' 'Satellite' and 'Options.' Click on 'Satellite' and check 'Center.' Then, click on 'Options' and select 'Update Rate' and click on 1/4 second. To get the exact position, click on 'View' and then 'Satellite Position.' Right now the ISS is passing over the ocean way south of Tasmania and skimming the Antarctic Ocean south of NZ.
