Viewing the ISS

I know this is going to sound dopey, but I'm so excited. I just got to see the International Space Station for the first time. It actually made me giddy as I watched it rise above the horizon in the South West situated between Saturn and Antares in the sky. I tracked it across as it disappeared, it seemed so close, like I could touch it.

I signed up to get email updates as to when the ISS would be visible. When I lived down on Long Island, forget about it. With the light spill and all, I never got a chance. However up here in Syracuse where there is hardly any, the sky watching and use of a telescope is simply amazing. Now I want to upgrade my telescope to take advantage of it.
