The link above will show you when and where to look in the night sky to see the shuttle Discovery and the International Space Station. The shuttle has undocked from the space station, so you'll see the shuttle first at 8:40PM and then the space station at 8:41PM and they'll appear as two bright moving stars. Check the link above to see where to look, but for Wednesday night look to the Northwest, just 22 degrees above the horizon. They should be visible for 3 minutes, though some clouds may be a problem tonight. But there are more times for viewing each day this week, just click the link above.
