Have you ever seen the international space station (ISS) fly over?  This is a shot of the point in Cape Henlopen State Park, taken from the International Space Station.  That is a very long cast and I doubt they have to air down.  The point will open on September first.  Want to see the ISS? You can also sign up for alerts when it will pass over via email … http://spotthestation.nasa.gov/  or you can see a daily schedule by filling in your location and get a schedule of passes.  Below is a list for the next few days, which will be fun to see while stargazing for Perseid meteors.  It will look like a very fast moving jet, and will last anywhere from one to two minutes.
