Hey, space cadets! The International Space Station is back in the evening skies, and it will be soaring up the East Coast tonight - this time with the space shuttle Discovery attached. That's 10 space travelers in all - more than pull Santa's sleigh. Look for a bright, steady, star-like object rising above the southwestern horizon at 5:37 p.m. At 5:40 they will be off the Delmarva coast, more than halfway up the southeastern sky as seen from Baltimore. By 5:42 p.m. they all vanish into the Earth's shadow.
