OMG those are awesome. I'd give my left nut to fly in it for a couple weeks.

This is a repost, but if you want to see when the ISS is flying over your area here's the link. The 3-5 minute views are the best meaning that's when it's the closest to you.

I've also heard the IPhones can download a free sky watch app that it shows up on for easier sighting.

I woke up to go throw some flies around at the streams and it's raining again. I'm gonna give it till 11 then say screw it. Even if it does stop raining it's gonna be rough because the water is so high.

Hell, I have no idea where to go look it up at but it's rained more the past 4 weeks than I can remember. The only way to pull out a trout would be with a small shiny spinner. I want to break out the Orvis not the bass rod.

Nice trout. I'm still trying to move west, get some Cisco Engineer jobs in Durango or Billings! Sick of this east coast shiat!

It snowed again here in town yesterday and the foot hills and mountains got dumped on, again. :spock: I have a feeling that when it does warm up, it's going to go from winter to summer, like last year, and all the streams and rivers will get blown off with silt. Hell, at this rate, it will be July before I get any river fishing in, after the short window in May. :grr:

Here's my Beaver Lake from a slightly different angle.

I never heard of that lake before reading those captions but now it's on my "to do" list. We have a huge man made lake (27 mile circumference) that's not that big but still big and man made. It's neat when your in a boat and the mountains just shoot out of the water like that from being flooded.

I've worked in or around IMAX theaters for over 20 years. And if I were to distill the entire thing down to one good point, it's this: being able to see space-based films on the giant screens. "The Dream Is Alive", "Blue Planet", "Space Station 3D", and a bunch more. If you think seeing a pretty picture is impressive, imagine seeing an 80-foot moving image that fills your field of vision. IIRC even the astronauts who saw the films said it was as close to being up there as they felt on solid ground.

Beaver Lake and Quatchita Lake here in Arkansas are two of the most beautiful lakes I have ever seen.
Clear water, rocks, bluffs and trees.....but they can humble the best fishermen because of the clarity and depth.

Looks like Raystown Lake is a beauty also.

Sweet!

People should be watching that sight towards the end of the week because of the space shuttle launch (only two left).

The site will project if/when you can see the SS and ISS orbiting together. If the timing is right you can see the SS chasing or pulling away from the ISS with the naked eye.
