ISS in Our Skies This Week

We just had a nice passage of the International Space Station (ISS). I managed to grab a few pics. There were some cirrus clouds illuminated by the Moon, but I got a couple that I liked.

Tomorrow night it will pass even higher in our sky. Look for it in the Tucson area from 8:20 pm till 8:31, with it being at its highest (77 degrees) at 8:25 p.m. Speaking of the space station, if you haven't seen it yet, be sure to check out the live HD streaming video from orbit. It's pretty fantastic.
