The space shuttle Discovery is coming home to rest for good.

Discovery left the space station today (March 7) and is due to land in Florida on Wednesday. This means that — weather permitting — there are opportunities to see both Discovery and the space station flying across the sky from many locations.

The sight should easily be visible to anyone, even from brightly lit cities. Discovery and the space station should appear as bright, fast-moving lights across the sky.

Check out this NASA link under “Sighting Opportunities” on the left side of the page to determine where and when to view the ISS and Discovery from your location.

We can call this one Identified.

  1. I could use one of those. I wonder if they have any plans to sell it?
