Ground Control to Major Tom. I Just Tracked the Intl. Space Station Across the Dawn Sky!

Sunday, September 16, 2018

A few blogs ago, I wrote about signing up to be notified when the ISS would be visible above San Diego. This morning, I logged onto my computer and found this message:

Time: Sun Sep 16 6:02 AM, Visible: 6 min, Max Height: 74°, Appears: 10° above NW, Disappears: 10° above SE

I got out my binos and right on the button at 6:02, there it was. It was still a bit dark, so all I could see were the lights traveling across the morning sky. But it was still thrilling, knowing where they are and where I am. Hopefully, next time, I'll see it during the day and have more visibility.

Wishing all a happy, healthy day.
