More Chances to View the International Space Station

I received a reminder from viewer Richard Travis regarding a few more chances to view the International Space Station this weekend and early next week (Thanks Richard!).

Here's what I could find:

Friday 11/4 7:44 pm
Look to the NNW at 33 degrees above the horizon
Duration: 4 minutes

Saturday 11/5 8:24 pm
Look to the WNW at 33 degrees above the horizon
Duration: 2 minutes

Sunday 11/6 6:25pm
Look to the NW at 81 degrees above the horizon
Duration: 6 minutes
**This will likely be the best time to view it - a long duration and almost directly overhead.**

Tuesday 11/8 6:06 pm
Look to the WNW at 38 degrees above the horizon
Duration: 6 minutes

Skies are expected to be clear this weekend. You can see it just fine with your eyes (but binoculars will help a bit). No need for a telescope, but if you use one, be prepared to move it often as the ISS zips quickly across the sky.

    I saw the ISS Friday, Saturday and Sunday! Awesome...but sad no one is aboard it right now.

    Sorry I missed seeing the ISS on Sunday evening, but I hope my supervisor at work will let me go outside to try to find it this Tuesday evening. Can't wait to try to see the asteroid. Did you hear about the earthquake in Oklahoma?

    Go to (or just heavens-above and it will come up)and register and they will explain all(you dont have to register but it is better if you do) _...excellent site for star gazers. By putting your location, you will be able to see many things up in the web-site.
