ISS flying over Mauritius

Though  it seems weird as if I am Re-tweeting my  tweets to myself  but this time on the WordPress blog. But it’s something I’m really looking forward too. Yeah, I want to see this Big ISS again which is going to appear very bright tomorrow morning in the Mauritian Skies. And I’m happy ’cause last time I got this tweet from @twisst. And though it was quite early (tomorrow it’s earlier) and it had been very cloudy out there, but tonight it’s clear skies. And I’m hoping to have a wait to see Mr ISS again.

My last time experience….. I woke up everyone around…..They loved it. ….It’s fun to see a star swooshing up on the sky.

So here’s the Tweet. (I am starting to love twitter now. It bugs me a bit but it’s ok. You get fresh news 24/7).

  1. That Twisst service is pretty cool. Enjoy the view! 🙂

  2. Do you know if the ISS has a photo mission that cover Mauritius? If they do, I bet it would be some wonderful shots.
