Track Overhead Satellites Monday with Handy-Dandy SpaceWeather Tool

Sorry to be a bit tardy with this notice, but you have an excellent chance to see Venus and the Moon accompanied by the ISS (international space station) early Monday morning this August 17, 2009.

“Set your alarm for dawn. On Monday morning, Aug. 17th, Venus and the crescent Moon will gather in the eastern sky for a beautiful close encounter. For many observers in North America, the International Space Station (ISS) will make an appearance, too. It’s a dynamite way to begin the day.” — from

BTW you can monitor the flybys of a half dozen of the major satellites over your area with this handy little web page tool. Just type in your zip code and it will tell you if the ISS or Hubble is going to be visible in your area. Go to:

This will help you separate out the man-made objects from Venus, Mars, Jupiter et al.

A gift to my lovely readers —

As a special gift to my readers I thought you might enjoy some background music. A terrific writer and geek found these archived radio recordings of the Beatles for a Swedish radio show way back when. He cleaned them up a bit and edited them, and here they are. Five songs in cool condition. So turn up the volume alright already.
