Last night was brilliantly clear and cold, and Darlyne and Suzy were very forgiving when I made them come out to the deck to watch for the International Space Station (ISS) pass overhead. The forgiving part was important when we didn’t see it and I realized that I had the wrong day . . .
But tonight and then Tuesday we’ll have two great chances to see it pass. The path the bright little dot takes across the sky varies, and these two passes will be high overhead and quite bright. They’re on the Tedderhaven calendar, with a link to the site I use to find them (Heavens Above). NASA also has a good ISS-sighting finder.
There’s a lunar eclipse tonight, too! Exciting times to be in a spot with low humidity and pretty dark skies.
