ISS passes just above Vega



It seems all the great astronomy in the Midwest (USA) is sometimes the coldest days of the year -- single digits (F) tonight.  :-)

Tonight (Wednesday evening, Dec. 5) at 6:10 PM CST, 
the International Space Station (ISS) made a visible pass (Chicago area) and as it arced across the sky -- it passed just above the star Vega -- and then went into eclipse a couple of minutes later !

The Space Shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to join it tomorrow evening for "the chase" !
