FYI=International Space Station TONIGHT

  • Apr 27, 2014 · 9:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

FYI=Non Kayak Event=Tonight (Sunday, April 27th),there will be a don't-miss pass of the International Space Station almost straight over head as seen from the Tampa Bay area. (In fact, if you're anywhere within 100 miles or so of Tampa Bay, look up and you'll still see the ISS pass overhead, though it might be slightly lower in the sky and off by several seconds, depending upon your location.)

Tonight's pass will begin at 8:40 p.m. Face Northwest, and the ISS will appear "star-like" and rise higher and higher in the sky for the next few minutes until it passes almost directly overhead three minutes later. By the time it's overhead, it will be extremely the brightest star in the sky, only moving!

It will continue on a straight line, finally fading from view low in the Southwest just after 8:46 p.m.

    right on time for 3-4 minutes. Went from the NW horizon clear to the SE horizon. Totally awesome. Last year it went straight up, not as impressive as tonight. bright and steady speed. Will post picture from John when I get one. Will post internet picture when Meet Up allows an album to be made.
