Flintstone Stargazing

Tonight at 9, see the International Space Station

If you’re in or around Chattanooga (or Flintstone, GA of course), this evening at 9:00pm, the ISS should be visible. Click here for a diagram of where it’s going to show up. I’ll be trying to get some more photos, of course, but if anyone else wants to try or just see the thing, tonight’s a pretty good night to do it because it’ll be very bright, be visible for a very long time (across nearly the entire sky), the viewing conditions are predicted to be really very good and it’s not going to be super late. Here’s my blog entry from when I was viewing it a couple nights ago. The only downside is that even at 9:00 it’s still reasonably bright out so it may not be as visible until it is a bit higher in the sky.

I also saw it last night and tried to get some photos, but didn’t have much success. Though I did get one intriguing photo, I kind of think it was of something else. I may post that photo at a later time for folks to look at.
