Enjoy another viewing of the International Space Station tonight. To cap off a absolutely beautiful Balsam weekend, the ISS will pass almost directly overhead tonight at 9:17 PM. If you have not seen the night time passes this week this will be a great seeing opportunity with clear and dry skies.

That pesky full moon is washing out dimmer objects but its still a good time to see Saturn if you have binoculars or a small telescope. It will be high in the South at dusk and about a hand’s width apart from the bright star Antares. Check this link for a viewing guide to know where to look.

 

Enjoy!
