Post nearly 550 entries and the blog routine should always fall into place, right? Mostly I've been lucky rather than skilled, but the luck didn't hold tonight... Let me tell you the plan..
http://www.heavens-above.com/ and saw that the International Space Station (ISS) was making a pass low in the NE this evening at 1900 - see the plot at right from the website. From Tucson, it would cross the handle of the Big Dipper near Epsilon Ursa Majoris at an elevation of about 11 degrees. A background? Hmm - with an appearance low in the north, how about a profile of the Catalinas, and Finger Rock a few miles to the north?! Well, it was 1800 at the time, the ISS was already somewhere over the South Atlantic and headed this way!
Well, not what I imagined for a post, but I'll take it for now, and try for a better pass another time...
