View the International Space Station from Dubuque this week
With clearing skies expected, tonight may be the best night for viewing the International Space Station in the Dubuque area this week. Beginning at 6:54 PM tonight, the station should come into view. Look to the Northwest, about 10 degrees above the horizon. If you extend your arm toward the Northwest and make a fist with the bottom appearing to rest on the horizon, the top of your fist should indicate about 10 degrees. (HANDY guide, huh?)
The station will move toward the Northeast before disappearing at 6:57 PM at 73 degrees above Northeast, the highest point in which it will appear this week. The chart below outlines this week's viewing opportunities for our area. If you get any good pics, please share them with us here.
