NASA launches new service to text alert people to see Space Station in sky…

Until now, most of the people are unaware of the location of the ISS even though ISS is the third brightest objective present in the sky after the sun and the moon.
But with the launch of NASA?s new Spot the Station service, people get the information about where to look and would be able to see it easily – even without a telescope.
The service has been launched in order to celebrate the 12th anniversary of crews residing and working aboard the station.
“It’s really remarkable to see the space station fly overhead and to realize humans built an orbital complex that can be spotted from Earth by almost anyone looking up at just the right moment,” the Daily Mail quoted William Gerstenmaier, NASA’s associate administrator for human exploration and operations, as saying.
“We’re accomplishing science on the space station that is helping to improve life on Earth and paving the way for future exploration of deep space,” he added.
