A is for…

Verse of the Week: A is for…

“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:10

Hymn of the Week: Awake My Soul by Thomas Ken, Robert Schumann

“Awake, my soul, and with the sun
Thy daily stage of duty run:
Shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise
To pay Thy morning sacrifice.

Wake and lift up thyself, my heart,
And with the angels bear thy part,
Who all night long, unwearied sing
High praise to the eternal King.”

Awake my boys, and let’s start school!

Hoping for a cloudless night

Found a neat website that allows you to track the current location of the International Space Station and see what it’s view of the earth might be like.
iss.astroviewer.net
Also, you can find out when you can actually see the ISS overhead by plugging in your current location on NASA’s website.

Just go to the blue “connect to mission” box on the lower left and click the orange “station sightings” button.
There should be a 2 minute window tonight and a 4 minute window tomorrow night when we can see the ISS cross over Kona. Unfortunately we’ve had a lot of patchy clouds lately, which makes for some great sunsets, but not very good star-gazing.
