I just wanted to let you all know that International Space Station (ISS)will be flying over at 9:41 this evening. The sky is absolutely perfect for viewing and temps are so comfortable. It’s a nice night to step out and watch the station fly over.
The ISS will rise near the west, northwest horizon at 9:41 and set in the west, southwest approximately three minutes later. It will rise to a height of a 45-degree angle.
One other thing to look for is Venus. She is our “evening star” these days and is already looking beautiful out there in that evening sky. Just look west and just above the horizon where the sun set. You can’t miss her.
I’m including a picture of the current crew of the ISS. Be sure and wave as they sail by! In the picture below are, from left to right, Pyotr Dubrov, Shane Kimbrough, Megan McArthur, Thomas Pesquet, Akihiko Hoshide, Oleg Novitskiy, &
Mark Vande Hei.
