Just watched the ISS with Crew Dragon following fly directly overhead. Came over the SW horizon and stayed visible for about six minutes. A smaller dot of light behind ISS that had to be Crew Dragon. (They dock about 10 pm) So cool to see that!!

Not a chance. They won't even deliver to us here, at least to set up on line, even though we see them delivering nearby!

C'mon you guys!

You live in a place famous for its culinary freshness and authenticity, and you want Dominios!?:wtf:

Order local. You'll get an actual pizza, and you won't be supporting some multinational corporation that's probably screwing its workers as hard as they can.:vivamexico:

BTW...wasn't that ISS sighting really cool?B-)

I use a free app called "ISS SPOTTER" that alerts me several days in advance when the ISS will fly overhead and be visible.

Mine is ISS Tracker and it uses the compass to point at the spot ISS will appear in the sky.

Mine also uses a compass pointer and elevation indicator as well as a map showing the exact position. However, I never leave any of my Location Services on so as to NOT be on anyone's radar and to save battery. I turn them on when I need them and turn them off when I'm done.

I did some work for one of the occupants of the SS last year. No not the singing one and I did the work last year he wasn't up there so that leaves two out of three. ;-) Interesting dedicated people that get to do a tour in the Space Station.
