Did you know the International Space Station often passes over Klamath Falls? Did you know you can see some of the passes and watch the space station fly overhead at 17,000mph? All without any aid to your normal vision!
The space station looks like a bright, fast moving star as it passes overhead. I use an app called Sputnik! Available for iOS users, Sputnik! offers real time predictions of visible passes of the Space Station as well as Irdium flares which are bright pulses of sunlight reflected by communication satellites. Each pass is assigned a brightness rating and the higher the – number the brighter the pass will be. For example a -3 brightness would be much brighter and easier to see than a -1 and so on.
