: including the international space station. Here's a link: https://spotthestation.nasa.gov/sightings/index.cfm
: You can also find info for the Starlink satellites you saw: https://findstarlink.com/
: Remember to enjoy the natural night sky too and look at the moon, planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies, and all the other wonders!
: Oh, and since I'm on my soapbox -- Turn off your outside lights at night when not in use to avoid light pollution and irritating your neighbors. If you're worried about crime (it has been proven that extra lighting does not improve security), use motion detected lighting instead.
: Remember: Stars Up, Lights Down!
: One more website for you all with regard to outdoor lighting and preserving the night sky: Check out the International Dark Sky Association
: Have fun!
