ISS - 26.9.2021 at 20.30 - 26.9.2021 at 20.34 Tampere Observation number 101495

Visibility IV / V

Markku Lintinen, Tampereen Ursa

Sky Safari alerted "ISS (Zarya) rising". Good when reminded. This was my best observation to date at these latitudes. The video is somewhat accelerated. The ISS disappears into the shadow of the earth shortly after passing Jupiter.

Even on Monday night, this is worth a look. Still quite clear skies may appear in the south at about 19:45 and in the direction of Jupiter at 19:47:30. The next round rises from the southwest at 21:17 and disappears into the shade just before noon at 21:22.

Heh, satuinpa juuri tänään vahingossa näkemään ISS:n. Olin menossa yläkerrasta alakertaan ja vilkaisin tapani mukaan ikkunasta taivaalle. Huikkasin lapsetkin katsomaan avaruusasemaa ja hyvin ehtivät näkemään sen enenkuin se hävisi Maan varjoon. Katsoin hetken päästä kelloa, se näytti 19.49.
