NASA has unveiled a new SMS and e-mail notification service called "Spot the Station" that will let people know in advance when the International Space Station (ISS) will be flying over their heads. While its visibility may depend on weather conditions and location, NASA says it's fairly easy to spot the station as long as you know where and when to look for it, as it is the third brightest object in the sky from the Earth's point of view.
