No more early wake-ups

Evening passes are back!

ISS Pass over Chicago on Feb 14, 2012

The Space Station won’t be visible in Chicago for a few days, but when she returns, starting on February 11, she’s back at night. The 14th and 15th will have extremely bright opportunities, passing right over the city.

Schedule of passes

The picture on the left shows the iPhone app schedule of passes. It’s not all the detail you’ll need, but it’s a good start. Pay attention to the Magnitude indicator on the right. The lower the number, the brighter the appearance. I’m looking forward to the 6-minute pass on the 15th especially. It doesn’t get much brighter than that.
