Here's a list of the top 50 double stars in Bootes
Yeah, i know it's raining right now, but at about 9PM, if it's clear, the ISS, magnitude -3.7, will pass almost directly overhead (elevation, 89 degrees)
Watch in the nortwest tonight about 9:07 PM. and it should be going almost straight up on the sky.
In case you cannot see the horizon, be there at exactly
21:10:09 and see it due overhead.
Here's the numbers from heavens-above
3 May -3.7 21:07:15 10 WNW 21:10:09 88 N 21:12:37 13 ESE
This means it will reach 10 degrees altitude at 9:07 PM, EDT,
and reach the highest altitude (overhead) at 9:10:09 PM,
and fade out at 9:12:37 PM as it enters the Earth's shadow, altitude 13 degrees.
Naturally, observing sessions are subject to the weather. Check the Clear Sky Clock on the Main Page for forecasts. Scheduled observing nights will be confirmed on the day. Check here for times before heading out.For more info. (like the lock combination) contact:
