The ISS

Recommended Posts

Not exactly "Airline" material but aviation at its heart. I watched the ISS tonight again, twice, overfly my abode. Gotta be 50+ times I've seen it. Many times by itself, a few times coupled to a shuttle, once after the shuttle detached for re-entry with two distinct targets. For anyone not witnessed such a magnificent event, go here https://spotthestation.nasa.gov/sightings/ to look for your times. They're accurate to the minute in whichever time zone you happen to be.

Also, for IOS users there is "Sky Guide", an app that uses the iPhone's gps & acceleration capabilities to "map" the sky above one in real time, (just like apps that can tell one what an aircraft going overhead is, where it's heading and so on, like FR24).

Interesting Moon. How are you viewing it? Eyeball-180 or something stronger?
