ISS for Feb 2

So, I slept through the last one. Did any of you see it?

This pass, coming up on Thursday the 2nd, looks identical to the ISS visit I posted about here. Thursday’s will be earlier though, appearing in the northwest sky at 5:33 in the morning. Don’t look directly at the horizon though; instead, it will first appear about 45 degrees above the horizon, and continue towards the southeast horizon before heading out of sight. The entire pass will last for about 4 minutes, and will be just about as bright as these passes can get. As long as you’re away from enough light pollution to see any stars at all, you’ll be able to see it. It will look like a very bright star, except that it will be moving. No flashes, no blinking, just a solid light moving slowly across the sky. If you consider 14,000 mph slow.
