There's something in the sky.
It shows up by dusk, before stars can be seen.
It's the (apparent) size of a start.
It is not a start, as it is not twinkling.
It is not Mars, as it is not red.
And somehow I don't think it's Venus either, because I can see it more easily than Venus.
The thing is, a couple of years ago, I saw on TV that the ISS would be seen from the ground when it would be completed. Months passed, perhaps even a year or more, as I wasn't counting, and then I started seeing that thing...
It's weird, because most of the time it can be seen even when no other stars can, and I've always been the kind of guy who looks constantly at the sky by night, so it is not likely that I've missed that thing for so many years and suddenly keep on noticing it every single day. Er... night.
Well, not every night, of course. There are nights when I don't have the opportunity to see the sky, be it because I'm inside walls or just because the weather won't let me.
Anyway, the question is:
Is that the ISS?
Can the ISS really be seen from the ground?
Is that really an astronaut waving at me?
To somebody else?
OK, you get the point
Any well-informed geek reading this?
