Space Station Visible Tonight from Monrovia | Chamber Open House | Bear


~ Monrovia's Old Town Sidewalk Astronomers reports that just a few minutes before 8 p.m. tonight there will be a "high bright pass of the International Space Station." The station "will appear low in the southwest about 7:54, and by 7:56 it'll be very high in the sky, slightly to the west, moving from southwest to northeast. It will be very bright, looking like a moving star. Just after 7:57, it will pass into earth's shadow, and slowly fade out of sight in the northeast."

~ Monrovia Chamber of Commerce has remodeled its lobby. If you'd like to see it, stop by the Chamber office this Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. for the ribbon cutting and reception.

  1. We've spotted it. Can be seen from Monrovia right NOW. Moving very slowly so look to the north north west. Once you spot it you will need to stare before you'll see that it is indeed moving.
    Thanks for the heads up Brad

    click on the date for a "sky view" track or click again in upper right for "ground track" view, which I find easier to understand
