One night when I lived in Arkansas, I was standing outside the house looking up at dusk. In my old neighborhood everyone walked at that time so about 20 or so neighbors stopped and asked what I was looking at. I pointed to this square shaped bright light zooming overhead and said it was the ISS. The neighbors were amazed they could see it and how much detail you could make out. It was like that scene in Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Here in Colorado, no neighbors, and cows can't look up for some reason, but I see it zoom overhead all the time. It's as big of a thrill as the first time I saw it.
And yes I wave.
