The INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION (ISS) received a new set of solar wings from the Space Shuttle that will not only provide more power but will also make the ISS one of the brightest objects in the night sky. The glow that reflects off of the panels will create an object near the intensity of Venus. Below are links to related sites that will allow you to track the ISS in the night sky and find out when it passes over your neighborhood again.
