I'm starting a new thread because the other thread title would be confusing.

December 8 and 9 are looking pretty good.

The Hubble Telescope is going to fly over at the same time, with a similar trajectory.

I agree, but in fairness, I stole it from some other thread here a year ago or so. I wish I could give credit to whoever actually posted it first but I don't recall.

This would be sweet. I think there's a string coming over in the next day or so, but I doubt it'll look anything close.

Friendly reminder to look up at 7:10pm to see ISS.

Check out See A Satellite Tonight to see where to look from your location.

Thanks for sharing. The SpottheStation App stopped sending me text reminder recently even though I have renewed the subscription. I look forward to watching the ISS flyover again tomorrow when its brightness will double.

Easily the brightest thing in the sky, plus Mars so visible, and Saturn/Jupiter getting closer together.

Fun skywatching; also thanks again for the heads up Bait & whoever posted Darpinian!

Again, thanks for this link. I saw ISS, some rando R/B, and Hubble tonight. I haven't really been looking for anything in a while since the iridium satellite flares are going out of orbit and the app I used to use no longer works (SatTracker?). I'm not as fond of Heavens Above, but because of this site I can get my bearings a little easier and supplement it with HA. Unfortunately the site didn't work great on my tablet.

Isn't there one tomorrow morning at 6:18? Heavens-above uses military / 24 hour time.
