Does anyone recall seeing an "I Saw the Space Station" patch? Thought I saw them on eBay some time ago. Would like to buy a few of them if they are available.

The patch you're seeking is offered by Spaceboosters: I've Seen The ISS Embroidered Patch
Wear this patch with pride and pass on the message to look out for the International Space Station, visible in the sky near you...
(I edited/updated the subject line to facilitate others finding this topic in the future.)

Thanks for your quick reply Robert, my family and me saw it tonight, 7:05, it looked great here in Cleveland, 12 o'clock high, clear skies, want to get some patches for my daughter and her family.

LOL, Hart...

But the truth is, it could be a great teaching tool. Imagine getting a bunch of kids together to show them the ISS, then when it's passed, surprise them all with this patch! Memories that would make a lasting impression.

Yep, it's an excellent patch and adorns one of my baseball caps.

I'm going to have to get one of these, I get the e-mail alerts for each time the ISS goes over my home.

Is there a link to sign up for the email updates? I've visited NASA's Spot the Station and Heavens Above, but I don't want to miss it. I'd like to try my hand at spotting it and "officially" earn the patch. Thanks again!
