I saw the space station!

Just saw the International Space Station for the first time! It passed directly overhead for five minutes, from 9:40pm to 9:45pm. If you were looking for it, you couldn't miss it; it looked just like a moving star. I've seen parts of it in person before, before they were attached to the rest of the station: the first time on January 1, 2000, at Kennedy Space Center (awesome way to open up the 2000s), and the other time just two months ago, when I visited KSC again (although the parts I saw two months ago haven't been taken to the station yet.)
