    SPACE SHUTTLE SKY SHOW: On Monday morning, April 5th, thousands of people
    gathered in Florida to witness the launch of space shuttle Discovery may get
    more than they bargained for. Just fifteen minutes before the shuttle takes
    off, the International Space Station (ISS) will fly over the launch site.
    The station's path across the dawn sky takes it right past the gibbous
    Moon--a beautiful close encounter! Photographers should be prepared for the
    ISS at 6:06 am EDT followed by Discovery's launch at 6:21 am EDT. Sky
    watchers with iPhones can prepare themselves by downloading our Simple
    Satellite Tracker (http://simpleflybys.com); it will guide you to the ISS
    and count down to the flyby so you can't miss it.
