Look up tonight!

For the next few nights we’ll have a chance to see the Shuttle Atlantis and the International Space Station fly overhead. It’s supposed to be around 10:00pm here the next couple nights then earlier on Friday and Saturday. Hopefully the weather permits!

You can look up the times and where in the sky to look based on your location at this NASA site.

Last time I saw the Shuttle fly over I was a kid and it was at about 4 a.m. and freezing cold outside. The bright little spec streaked across the sky in a matter of seconds and it was over. Ha ha. This time around the two should be visible for ~2 minutes increasing to 4 minutes over the next few nights. I’m glad that there’s more inviting weather this time around too! So find a nice open patch of land and check it out!

  1. Have you gotten out to see it? I remember the first (and only time for me) that we saw the shuttle fly over. We lived on Barbara Lane. As I recall it was a bit chilly. I’ll have to step out Friday and Sunday and have a peek see. Thanks for the heads up!
