ISS Transits May 8-12


By Tony_Suruda - Posted on 03 May 2009

The International Space Station will be visible from Silverton several times during the second week of May. Rumor has it that the new solar array makes the ISS bright enough to be seen during the daytime but I have not been able to verify this with my own eyeballs yet.

May 8 The ISS will rise in the NW at 5:44 AM and will reach peak elevation in the SW at 5:46.

May 10 The ISS will rise in the WNW at 5:01 AM
and will reach peak elevation in the SW at 5:03.

(same day) The ISS will rise in the SW at 9:27 PM and will pass nearly overhead at 9:29 PM heading SE.

May 12 The ISS will rise in the SW at 8:44 PM and will be overhead at 8:46 PM heading NNW.

If you are in an area away from the mountains with a low horizon there are additional ISS viewing opportunities, check them out at www.heavens-above.com
