Another Space Station Flyover

November 08, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

The International Space Station passed over Lake Santa Fe early on the morning of Wednesday, November 8, 2023. A crescent Moon illuminated the early sky with a bright planet Venus hanging underneath. It became visible in our area approximately at 5:41 am located 29° above NW direction (approx 321 ° ) and proceeded very quickly overhead, decending in a SE direction (approx 134 ° ). The duration of visibility was nearly five minutes, at a brightness of -4 (Keep in mind, the more negative the number of magnitude, the brighter of visibility; a full moon has a magnitide of -13 for comparison.)

In the past, I've shared a few fun apps to track the ISS before, but I'll share them again in case you didn't see them. What makes this fun is some of these apps allow you to listen to the live feed and conversations between the astronauts on the Space Station and Ground Control, or view what their onboard cameras see when looking down toward Earth and screenshot images as they pass over your favorite areas! You can also track other satellites like the Hubble and Starlink trains.
