There are quite a few excellent flyovers of the International Space Station…most in the AM before sunrise but some in the evening. We start Wed. AM with a flyover at 5:47 am that starts WNW, climbs nearly overhead then moves to the SE. There are actually five different flyovers on the 18th, five on the 19th and 5 on the 20th. Rather than me write them down…go to THIS LINK to see the complete list. Here’s some interesting facts about the International Space Station.
We’ve also been enjoying the waxing (which means more of the moon is illuminated by sun each night) crescent moon and the planets Venus and Jupiter in our evening sky. Venus is to the west and Jupiter to the south. Here’s this weeks Sky at a Glance.
