Last Chance to See ISS and Discovery!
Much of the U.S. will get a chance to see the International Space Station and Discovery flying in tandem the next two nights. This will be the last chance to see Discovery as it is being retired. We get a short, low pass here in Tucson tonight. You can check info and times for you location at Heavens Above or Spaceweather’s Simple Satellite Tracker (although Spaceweather’s interface is easy to use, they don’t show all the passes…they don’t show the low pass that takes place in Tucson tonight!) Various apps are available for cell phones to help out as well (search your preferred market).
The ISS is always easy to see and the Shuttle will be slightly ahead of it. Here is a pic I took of a Shuttle/ISS flyby a while ago.
