The International Space Station is once again cruising through Santa
Barbara's evening skies, with decent passes Saturday, Sunday, Monday,
and Wednesday. There are a couple of other passes than the ones I'll
mention, but they are short, low, or dim. You can go to
www.heavens-above.com to find all of them.
Saturday, October 26, the ISS will rise in the NNW at 7:09 PM PDT,
and pass to the ENE, where it will enter Earth's shadow t 7:13 PM.
Best view is looking toward our mountain horizon.
Sunday, October 27, it will make a short but bright pass from the
WNW to WSW between 7:57 and 8:00 PM, entering Earth's shadow while
still quite high. Best viewed looking west toward sunset.
Monday, October 28, will be the brightest pass, from the NW at 7:09 PM
to the SE at 7:15 PM. This one goes almost overhead.
Wednesday, October 30, will be a dim pass between 7:09 and 7:15 PM,
from WNW to S, low across our western and southern horizons, passing
above brilliant Venus.
