I was checking to see the next time the International Space Station would fly over Regina’s skies, and saw it was in two minutes! (There are only a few times a week it is visible for a couple minutes, sometimes none.) I threw on my ski pants and coat, and grabbed my camera (and card out of the computer), then flew down the stairs and outside. I even remembered my little tripod to hold the camera properly for a night shot. It’s dark in Regina at 5:50pm still, and will be for another month or two.
A Canadian is on board the ISS. Hi, Commander Hadfield!
