Looking for the ISS?

For those of you paying attention to such things:

The Chicago area has a few International Space Station passes coming up in the next week. Two of them, if the skies are clear, will be spectacular.

On Sunday the 15th, it will come up at 6:24:31am. Look in the southwest sky. It will travel towards the east northeast horizon, going almost directly overhead.

On Tuesday the 17th, the second of two passes will first appear at 6:07:21am on the west southwest horizon, and head toward the northeast sky. It will appear to pass just to the north of the city, again almost directly over our heads. Make sure you wave; I’m convinced someone in the six-man crew will be watching.
