Greetings everyone,

ISS is returning to the VIs, but only for a few passes before her sighting opportunities will be possible during the early AM hours. (If anyone would like the morning schedule(s), I will be pleased to share them with you. A mug of coffee with ISS!) 🙂

Wednesday - 8/29
@ 8:07pm
A 2 min. run @ 33 degrees over the horizon
Arriving from the NNW and Departing to the NNW. Note: This is a short run and will not span much of the sky, but I thought I would post it anyway, since NASA did.

Thursday - 8/30
@ 7:19pm
A 4 min. run @30 degrees over the horizon
Arriving from the North and Departing to the East (N to E)

Saturday - 9/1
@ 7:20pm
A 4 min. run @ 60 degrees (near overhead) over the horizon
Arriving from the WNW and Departing to the SSE (WNW to SSE)

Note: I backed up the time for each run by one (1) minute just to allow for targetting the 'arrival' location in the sky.

"Give 'em a wave!"
Enjoy!
Thank you, Houston.
Swan
