There are only a few more days that you can see the shuttle and ISS together, as the shuttle will soon depart the ISS and return home. The times of the next few sightings of the ISS and Shuttle are listed below. Interestingly the times that you can see the ISS are not much different in the UK than they are in Ireland. – Anyway, the dates and times for sightings listed below are for Waterford but should be valid for most of the south of Ireland. The way the weather has been recently I haven’t even caught 1 glimpse of the ISS. The next few sightings are in the early morning starting again in December.
|ISS||Tue Nov 24/06:23 PM||2||19||19 above SW||10 above SSE|
|ISS||Wed Nov 25/05:11 PM||3||36||35 above SW||10 above SE|
|ISS||Thu Nov 26/05:34 PM||2||19||19 above SSW||10 above SSE|
|ISS||Mon Dec 07/07:27 AM||< 1||13||11 above S||13 above SSE|
|ISS||Tue Dec 08/07:48 AM||2||27||10 above SSW||27 above SSE|
|ISS||Wed Dec 09/06:37 AM||1||13||11 above S||13 above SSE|
Note – the ISS goes usually from South West to South South East and you will need a decent line of sight to the horizon.
There are only a few more Shuttle launches left before the Shuttle fleet retires … I think in 2010.
