ISS Sightings - Aug 2019

Recommended Posts

The first openings for Oklahoma City area are 5 and 6 Aug. 5 Aug goes into shadow before it gets 1 minute east of OKC, and is too early to be seen in  Pocatello, ID but visible in Grand Junction CO.

 

So, I'm looking for players in far east and far west Colorado.

 

Au 6 - it's too light 1 minute west of OKC, so looking for players SE of Shreveport LA to Gulfport MS.

 

If anyone knows of waymarkers in these areas that would like to get an ISS waymark, please let them know.

So exciting! 77° alt, -3.8 mag

From Google translate:

We summon all players who want to spend some time on geocaching, trackables, etc. Talking about this game that we all are so passionate about.

After the event we will enjoy the wonderful sky that can be seen from Nerpio thanks to the low luminic pollution. In particular we will enjoy the passage of the International Space Station.

The event will take place at the coordinates indicated, day and time indicated in the list as well. 

We're waiting for you!

I've always wanted to spot a day pass. 😎

So if I set up a partnership, but end up not being able to see the daytime pass, does my partner still get to create a waymark? 😁😀😬

Too bright and too many clouds in the sky. But Spain had a fantastic view!

Great sighting of tonight's pass. Too bad I didn't have a partner.

I had a great view of last night's pass, almost missed tonight's because of the high clouds. But no partner here, either.

We could not see last night's pass at all!  It was strange.

Such a shame that we have an 82º, -3.8 mag. tomorrow morning and no viewing partners!

I had an 88° pass yesterday morning, but a bank of clouds came in and obscured it.

Sept 15 at 06:18:46 am is my next visible pass at 48° to my NE. Oklahoma City shows same pass as 43° to SW at 06:17:03. And between now and then the path will move a couple more degrees farther SW.

I have another pass on Sept 18 at 20:28 at 58°. Oklahoma City shows the same pass at 20:30 at 41°. Between now and then the path will move to the NW. It might hit 45° by then for OK City.

Those are my only two visible passes for September above 45°. Next will be Oct. 10. Also maybe visible with OK City.

Fantastic viewing conditions this morning! Not a cloud in the sky, just the ISS and the Moon. Bright and high.

I'm hoping for clear skies on Friday the 13th with a Harvest moon. 

As are we. Right now it's not looking promising, but I'll let you know one way or the other later today.
