Just the saw the International Space Station swoosh over New York at 9:27p (just as a NASA txt indicated - estimated time was 9:51p) looked like a bolide (fireball), this is the second time I see this in person but it never ceases to be awesome. Keep looking up guys :D
even if we’re shrouded in constant light pollution
Head’s Up: NASA’s Spot The Station program provides email or text updates which alert you when and where the ISS will appear overhead in your local night skies! My little guy has already spotted it, as have I. It’s quite a humbling (albeit brief) experience. Most overhead passes last around 1-5 minutes. Stay curious.
And still so much more night sky events to look forward to this portion of the seasons including tonight’s Lyrid Meteor shower.
“Monday, April 16 marked the one-year anniversary of the first time park guests got to see an 8-week-old male cheetah cub and a 16-week-old female yellow Labrador puppy start to strike up a friendship that the park’s animal experts expect to last a lifetime.”
I missed this last night as I crossed the bay bridge and made my way to Oakland, but my instagram blew up. So here’s a great shot! Thanks!
