The International Space Station is becoming one of the brightest, fastest moving objects in the night sky. This photo
is a 5 minute time exposure taken from the ground which shows the station clearly as an arc across the sky. If you look closer
you can actually see two arcs, the other being that of the space shuttle Endeavour which had just undocked and was pulling away. If you would like to know when you can see it for yourself, try using this handy calculator

Momentus occasion ignored.
Well, mostly, or at least buried in the inner pages of most major U.S. pages. Isn't this sort of more important than the Knicks and Nets loosing their opening games? You wouldn't think so, since those stories were carried on the front pages on newspapers in the Northeast while this one was back on page 14 between two full page ads.
