I woke up at 4:30 PST (San Diego) and couldn't go back to sleep so I decided to take my telescope out and finally check out Saturn, the Orion Nebula, and Mars again. They looked awesome through the 8" telescope and I wish I was able to take pictures. Then around 5:30 I saw a really bright object moving slowly from the southwest towards the northeast, too big and bright to be a satellite. I knew it wasn't a plane because it had no blinking lights so I tried to use my telescope but I was only able to make out a solid ball of light at that speed. Turns out it was the International Space Station! I just thought that was neat and wanted to share. :eek:)
