The ISS will be making three pretty good passes through Santa Barbara's
evening skies to round out the year.
On Friday, 12/27, the ISS will rise in the NW at 6:34 PM and cruise
toward the south, entering the Earth's shadow and fading from view while
still quite high at 6:38 PM. Best viewed facing our mountain horizon.
On Saturday, 12/28, it will rise at 5:46 PM in the NW, and go from
horizon to horizon, setting in the ESE at 5:52 PM. Best viewed facing
our mountain horizon.
On Monday, 12/30, it will make a dimmer pass from WNW to SSE, rising
at 5:45 PM, and setting at 5:52 PM. Best viewed facing our ocean horizon.
