ISS Flyover Week

Hey Space Placers!

This week will be an excellent one to view the International Space Station (ISS)  if the skies are clear.

Check out this website and provide your location to get accurate sighting times:

 You can also see when Hubble Space Telescope and the Space Shuttle (when on orbit) pass your way.

Another feature to look at is "Iridium Flares". These big comm satellites have huge solar panels which catch the Sun's rays and "flare" into brilliance for a few seconds. They are quite stunning when they occur and can be a 100x brighter than Venus!

Be sure to check the site out and set it up for your observing location.
