More ISS viewing opportunities

ISS flyover from July 2008



A few of you saw my tweet and FB post last night about an upcoming International Space Station (ISS) flyover.  If you missed that viewing opportunity, not to worry!  The chart above (courtesy of Spaceweather.com) shows three more chances for Wichita through Sunday night.  Given the current forecast, I'd say tonight and especially Sunday night will offer the best view, with respect to forecast cloud cover.

If you're not in Wichita, just enter in your zip code to the appropriate field and you'll find the times ahead for your area.  Be sure to bookmark it!  Even though I've watched it fly over on a number of occasions, it's always a treat to see it again, knowing that humans are whizzing by overhead at just over 17,000 mph!!
