If you missed that mind-blowing Dragon capsule flyover, your consolation prize is the ISS at 10:06pm …viewing conditions are perfect.

I’m feeling a little verklempt right now.

That was some Alastair Reynolds level space action.

I went from watching a live webcast of a spaceship launching from the American coast to stepping outside and seeing it fly overhead.

HOLY CRAP! DID YOU SEE THAT!!?

Four points of light—the Dragon’s just-deployed solar arrays—zooming overhead …a beautiful sight!

In 15 minutes it will fly over my house.
