Space Station Pass in Lynchburg Area

It looks as though Lynchburg area sky watchers will actually have clear skies for a celestial event! The International Space Station will be visible tonight in an especially bright and high-in-the-sky pass. It will appear low in the southwest at 7:13:33 pm EDT, reach its highest altitude of 72° in the northwest at 7:16:47, and disappear above the northeast horizon at 7:20:02. For those of us who still remember a time when the only satellite of Earth was the moon, this is an event we never take for granted.
