Just recieved this from one of my astronomer friends, and it is pretty important imho, as I GUARANTEE there are going to be many folks who are going to be jumping up and down saying they just saw the biggest UFO ever.

Hopefully everyone will take note of this and keep this at the top for a few so we dont have a rash of threads and confusion:

"This evening the International Space Station (ISS) will be visible (as a bright light) crossing directly overhead from NW to SE, starting at 5:07pm, for about 5 minutes. At that time, just barely after sunset, there will only be 2 other objects visible in the sky, the moon and the planet Jupiter, both high up in the SW. They will be near each other and the ISS should pass close by them, making an brief conjunction of the 3 brightest objects all in the same small area. You should be able to see this from anywhere in Southern California."

I assume this is 5:07 PST? I would also assume any area similar longitudinally to SoCo would be able to view it within that time window. If so, i'll keep my eyes peeled tonight for the event, thanks for the info!

Yes, PST.

Should make for an awesome show.

Just want to make sure we don't have 5 dozen threads popping up here confusing it for "final disclosure".

A handy dandy lil app for knowing when you can see the ISS and other spacecraft.

One last bump before I head off to work---Hopefully people are paying attention to this, so we don't have a melee here.

Going to be a heck of a show.

Ha, I don't buy it. Your "friend" is prolly part of tptb....and just using you to spread disinfo. The alien ship flying over tonight is just that, an alien ship. Calling it the ISS in advance is genious.

The debunkers these days know no bounds, they are even trying to debunk in advance now!!!!!

Here is another tracking program. You can choose all sorts of satellites.

Cool I'm going to film this with my camera/tripod tonight.

I'll try to use my DroidX application that tracks the I.S.S. I'll even use the Google Sky maps application to show the other two celestial objects in the sky.

Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for that site!

I'm in Indianapolis. Last night, (about 6:10PM) I saw a large meteor go from east to west and break up into 3 or 4 pieces somewhere near or past the airport.

Quite a coincidence, looking at the chart from your link.

I see it was a Leonid, (from your link) they're peaking tomorrow.

LEONID METEOR SHOWER: The annual Leonid meteor shower peaks this year on Nov. 17th when Earth passes through a thicket of debris from Comet Tempel-Tuttle. Earth is expected to miss the densest swarms of comet dust, making this an off-year for Leonids with a maximum of only 20 meteors per hour. The best time to look is during the dark hours before sunrise on Wednesday.

East to west? Most, if not all man made satellites go from west to east. Has to do with the earth's rotation giving rockets an extra "kick" as they ascend to orbit. If what you saw was going from east to west. Then it was most likely a meteor.
Nice sighting.

I've only seen a few of those outside of a regularly known showers.

4:50 pm here and its still really bright out.. I can see the moon but not Jupiter yet. I think it's too bright out even to see it from So Cal.

tracking sats

Moon and Jupiter clearly visible.
Going out now to see if we can find ISS.

posted on Nov, 16 2010 @ 07:11 PM
Right on time and at least as bright a Jupiter at it's peak.

Yes it was...and hauling ass.

I saw it! Was moving very fast, had my camera ready but alas, no pic

That was cool.

Missed it... Sadly.

Maybe another time I will get to see it.
