There's some fun chances this month to see (and hear) some neato stuff. Here's a copy of the email alert I received today:

Space Weather News for Jan. 11, 2006

http://spaceweather.com

FIREBALL ALERT: On Sunday morning, Jan. 15th, between approximately

1:56 and 1:59 a.m. PST (0956 - 0959 UT), a brilliant fireball will streak

over northern California and Nevada. It's NASA's Stardust capsule,

returning to Earth with samples of dust from Comet Wild 2. Observers along

the flight path should have a marvelous view of this rare man-made

meteor. Radio signals reflected from the capsule's ionized tail may be

heard from a much wider area--hundreds to thousands of miles away. Visit

http://spaceweather.com for maps and observing tips.

INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION: The International Space Station is flying

over the United States in mid-January during evening hours when it is

easy to see. Would you like a phone call to alert you when the station

is about to appear over your home town? Sign up for SpaceWeather

Wont see the reentry here , darn it, but hopefully ( crossing fingers) will see the ISS. Had seen it before, but not with a new eyepiece, should be slearer this time. I hope LOL

There is a satellite that we see pretty regularly. its semi-geosynchronous, but they retask it every couple days. one day its in the west, the next, the east. Pretty obvious its the same one. Wish I knew what it was
