Check out the image just posted to Facebook by NASA’s Earth Observatory of the International Space Station flying over the U.S. East Coast. What stands out most is the prominence of the I-95 corridor from Richmond to New York City - appearing as a river of city lights. Truly a megalopolis....

Tonight, we can watch the International Space Station fly overhead in Washington, D.C., from northwest to southeast between 7:27 and 7:30 p.m. Check NASA’s website to see flyover times in other cities
