      Alright!!!  We had a -2.0 ISS passover at 5:07 this morning.  I was outside to see it.

      First, the sky was brilliant this morning...very clear with Orion and Venus dominating the southeast and east.

      The ISS made it's NNW appearance on schedule and it was bright but no where near the brilliance of Venus...very evident as it made it's way toward Venus.  S&T says Venus is near -4.0 at this time.

      Tomorrow morning the ISS will passover Smyrna at mag -4.0 almost directly overhead.  This should be a show!  Find your time for the passover at the link below.


      See you at the meeting tonight.  We will have a door prize fro a lucky person.
