Watching the Space Station Overhead

The third brightest object in the sky

tonight is the International Space Station.

Precisely: 5:37pm for 1 minute, 16° above South-Southwest.

If only my world was as predictable,

my orbit stable, looking down on this.

 

nyc ISS

The Atlantic east coast of the United States from the ISS. Easy to recognize cities include New York City and Long Island at the right and to the left for Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington DC near picture center.

If you want to watch the ISS pass over your home (it’s visible with naked eye), check at SpotTheStation.nasa.gov
