I contemplated talking about how impressive it was to view the International Space Station (ISS) passing over our house the past couple of clear nights. I’ve tried to look at it before, but Tuesday night was by far the most visible. On Tuesday night it passed directly overhead and was still lit up by the sun, which was well below "my" viewpoint horizon, but obviously not below those on the ISS 240 miles overhead. It was so incredibly bright that a photo of the fast moving satellite could be taken with my iPhone7plus (below).
… but then that was eclipsed (pun intended) … by a FaceTime call from our granddaughter Annalyn. What a welcomed smile and enjoyable time listening to her say her name and our names (Bompa and Oma) … and even count to ten (with mommy’s help). She is growing up way too fast.
