Evidence (which even your average person can understand):

You watch TV? Most TV satellites are circling the earth, in space. If not then how are you watching the TV?

Photos from space.

The Sun, unless you believe it is a small ball in the sky.

Telescopes give first hand evidence (as others have mentioned).

The moon. You might not believe people have been there but you can clearly see it in space, if it was in the limits of our 'sky' then we could fly planes there easy peasy.
