International Space Station viewing 4/29/12

Attention Mississippi folks...

The International Space Station will be visible briefly tonight.  At 8:10pm Central time, start looking north.  The space station will break over the horizon at 8:12pm, moving easterly.  It will crest in the northeastern sky around 8:17 and be as bright as Jupiter or Venus.  It will set in the eastern sky at 8:20pm.

This passing will have the space station in good sunlight, keeping it bright in our darkening sky.

If you're an amateur radio operator, or have a scanner, listen on 145.800 for voice, or 145.825 for packet data.  A handheld radio will hear the audio from either transmission.

Otherwise...enjoy the show!
