International Space Station and Space Shuttle Atlantis flyby during Thanksgiving

Current events

Depending on where you are, you may be able to see both the and in the night sky tonight, Thursday, and/or Friday night.

Just go to and enter in your zip code if you’re in the US or Canada. From other countries, you can go to instead. The site lists the time and direction/place you should look up in the night sky to see the event.

For most of the US, it seems ISS/Atlantis will be at around a -4 at least one of the following three days, which makes it brighter than Venus and should make it clearly visible assuming weather cooperates in your area.

Enjoy, and have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Updated 6:30P, Wednesday, November 25: We just watched two bright objects fly over our house, right on schedule. Most exciting thing we’ve seen in the suburban night sky in a long time. For anyone who has another chance, you can’t miss it as long as you look in the right general direction! They go by fast!
