The International Space Station (ISS) will be passing over San Francisco Thursday night!
Look up in the southwestern sky at exactly 6:57pm on Thursday night and you’ll see the International Space Station appear and fly all the way to the northeastern horizon. It should take about 4 minutes to go from horizon to horizon. It looks a bit like a jet flying at very high altitude, only it’s way too bright, it will likely be the brightest thing in the sky besides the moon, brighter than venus, brighter than watching the planes coming into SFO on Bernal Hill! When I first saw it on Bernal Hill last year, it took my breath away. It’s this tiny tin can moving at 20,000 miles an hour with 5 astronauts bobbing around inside, an artificial satelight that was put there by all these countries cooperating with one another.
