Track the Space Station and Then See It Pass Overhead

If you have a child in love with space as we do, then it’s really kind of cool that NASA makes it possible to keep up with its various missions as much as it does. [This page](http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/home/index.html) is a great way to get directly to the news and information you want. If you click on the link for the Space Station, you’ll find yourself on a page with the latest press release. In the right-hand column, you’ll see a link which will take you to [this page](http://www.jsc.nasa.gov/sightings/) which will let you determine when the next “fly-over” of the space station is for your area. (You can track other objects as well, though I don’t think the clandestine NSA spy satellites are listed. Check your local spy listings for that.)
