After a spectacular day, the clear sky tonight will provide anther opportunity to view the International Space Station flyover our region. We are in a period where the path will give us a chance (weather permitting) for three more nights after this as well. It will be chilly, so best to weather a jacket, or just enjoy a fire pit. Also, allow yourself an extra 10 minutes outside prior, to let your eyes just to the dark.
I have included the NASA live video from ISS looking down on Earth, plus the next three evening times.
Tonight’s show will begin at 9:19 PM from the west, near where the sun set earlier today. Then end at 9:30 PM to the south-southeast of Baltimore.
The peak will be at 9:23 PM at an elevation around 39º above the horizon to the south-southwest. This will be about the same hight as last night’s show, just the other direction.
The total potential viewing time is close to 11 minutes, depending on obstructions where it beings and ends.

- Time: 8:35 PM
- Height: 39º

You will be able to see it with your own eyes, but binoculars may help you identify some of the solar panels and central structure. I don’t recommend a telescope since it will be moving pretty fast. Check out these stats:
- Orbital speed: 17,000 mph
- Complete Orbit = 92.65 minutes
- Orbits per day: 15.54
- Days in orbit: 17 years, 26 days
- Altitude: Ranges between 249 and 256 miles above the ground
- Origin: The first component was launched in 1998
- Occupied since November 2, 2000. This year will be the 20th anniversary!
