Tuesday night 8:17 until 8:21 see the International Space Station at IBX


The ISS will travel over Ivanpah on Tuesday at 8:17 pm.

It will be at 56 degrees. Moving from SE to South to East. It starts shining at 8:17 and be across the sky at 8:22 pm.

This is a super cool event. Make sure to hoot and holler so everyone around knows to look up.

At 17150 mph, it is moving about 5 miles / second.

This night it will be very bright and provided clouds do not obscure it, awesome to see.
