If any of you have an iPad (and I hope the same is true for Android tablets), there are several great astronomy apps available for a few bucks. The one I love is called "Star Walk" and it shows you when the space station is coming over the horizon in real time. It also shows you the names of all the stars and planets and stuff, which makes it even cooler. You just hold it over your head and see what you're looking at.
Getting an email telling me that I might be able to see that space station on any given day, and having the app available to show me exactly where it is in the sky, is an unbeatable combo.
