With the successful launch of Falcon 9 into orbit (hurrah!) I thought again of watch the night sky for ISS.
At 8:47 tonight you will be able to see the ISS go over. You can only see ISS just after sunset and just before sunrise as the sunlight reflects off the station. Starts about due west near where the sun sets and continues eastward across the southern sky.
Should be a good view tonight at 26 degrees above the horizon. Even better view starting at 10:24PM up to 58 degrees. Rare to have two viewings on the same day.
PS – We should also be able to see the Falcon capsule but unsure when/when. Will report back.
