    Hi,
    
    I was trying to come up with a simple yet creative way of alerting the
    students that enter my classroom when there will be a high pass of the ISS
    over our area that night. I envisioned tacking a string across the ceiling
    and other things but I thought they would all be too difficult to set up and
    not an accurate perception anyway. But then I thought of this, something
    that I unfortunately still cannot do. My question is....has anyone seen a
    planetarium show that depicts the path of a satellite crossing the night
    sky? I would imagine that that would be enlightening for those who have no
    idea that the ISS is even visible. It would also be good to show people what
    they could expect that night or later, even having the Station going into
    shadow.
    
    Clear skies,
