If the thunderstorms are over early enough and it clears off we have a chance to see the space station with Endeavor attached early tomorrow morning.

ISS-Endeavour 04:29:24 am WNW 04:31:48am 65 -3.8 (very bright)

There won't be many more times to see this - ever.

Keep an eye out also for the Northern Lights for the next few nights. The sun is acting up.

Tomorrow morning just before 6 AM the International Space station will pass over Maine, appearing in the WSW and going almost directly overhead. It will be very bright. We are all up and outside at 5:55 AM, right?

ISS 05:56:21 am WSW 05:59:26am 76 -3.9 (very bright)

This evening the ISS will pass low over the horizon about 25 degrees up from the SSW.
It should be very clear for viewing. Be out at 6 PM.

ISS 06:06:27 pm SSW 06:09:33pm 26 -1.9 (very bright)

Default ISS tracker

I'm too lazy to read all the pages here, so not sure if anyone posted this:

For satellite tracking (ISS as well as any satellite), www.heavens-above.com is awesome - you have to edit your location, unless you just happen to live at 0 latitude 0 longitude LOL

Any satellite, including of course the International Space Station, plus awesome things like Iridium flares.. are all tracked on there.

Tomorrow it's nearly straight up and as bright as it gets at 5:50 PM.

ISS 05:50:15 pm WSW 05:53:30 74 -3.9 (very bright)

It's supposed to be clear.

OK space fans, there is a good one tomorrow night and you don't have to get up at 1 AM to see it.

ISS 05:09:09 pm WNW 05:11:38 32 -2.4 (very bright)

The International Space Station will rise at 5:09 PM in the west northwest and will be the brightest object in the sky moving to the east. It will disappear as it moves into the earth's shadow 2.5 minutes later. It's supposed to be clear and chilly.

Welp, here's reason to check City-Data's Maine Forum more often...

missed again...NMLM, you are thoughtful to update on the ISS pass over's. The one occasion I managed to see your post before the ISS's passage time, I loved seeing the ISS - it was incredibly cool!

NMLM, thank you for your faithfulness to this thread...

I wait for nights when it is very clear. Otherwise I don't mention it.

Tomorrow morning at 6:32 AM we will have the best ever sighting of the International Space Station. It will appear in the southwest as it comes out of the earth's shadow and go nearly straight up. It will be very bright. It is unusual for it to be visible for more than 3 minutes.

Temps will be about 10 below tomorrow morning, but you only have to be out for five minutes.

ISS 06:32:32 am WSW 06:35:49am 88 -4.0 (very bright)
