I meant to mention this yesterday, but I was too busy to post much of anything.

Thursday evening, as I parked my car at home, I looked up at the sky to the east, and noticed a light flying from southwest to northeast, fading while I watched. I had checked a few days before to see when the International Space Station would be visible overhead, and this was what I was looking at. I got to watch it for about twenty seconds until it fell behind the Earth's shadow and faded away. Very cool.

It's fairly easy to see, evenings or just before dawn. There's apps that'll give times directions and elevations for you to spot it coming overhead if you feel like scoping it out!
