The Next Time To See The International Space Station Over Bangor
One night a few years ago, we just happened to look up at the right time and saw the International Space Station cross over us, way up there! It was so cool!
Did you know that the Station cruises over our area, three, four, five and sometimes six times a day? It does, and on most clear nights you can see it beautifully.
NASA.Gov has a great section of the site that tells you when, how high, and how long the International Space Station crosses over any area.
Now, looking at this week's weather forecast, probably the best time to see it would be either Tuesday or Wednesday night, as it moves by us over partly cloudy skies.
@8:33 PM, Tuesday, May 21st, for approximately six minutes, it will move southwest, east northeast, and at it's highest point be at 73 degrees, almost looking straight up.
@9:19PM, Wednesday, May 22ns, for approximately six minutes, it will move west to northeast across the horizon, and at it's highest point be at 38 degrees.
The on board space personnel have been up there for a while, so make sure that you wave!
