In the same theme, can I recommend the International Space Station app.
It is called
ISS FINDER
It helps you identify the International Space Station.
If you have ever looked up at night and thought you saw a plane flying slowly across, well perhaps it is the ISS or another Satelite rather than a plane,

Shooting stars - glorious sight…

Enjoy yourselves - sitting outside under the stars…

Apparently the galaxy is, in fact warped and twisted.

Why does that not surprise me? :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

Much better than “bitter and twisted” :joy:

Take a peek outside around 9pm… tonight…

Alors que la journée se termine en ce jeudi 5 septembre, recherchez sur l’horizon sud sud-ouest la Lune au premier quartier. A peu près à la même hauteur mais plus à l’est, la brillante planète Jupiter se repère facilement même avant la nuit. Ces deux astres matérialisent deux des trois sommets d’un triangle céleste remarquable et presque équilatéral.

Pour voir le troisième sommet du triangle, il faut attendre que la nuit s’installe un peu, vers 21h (heure de Paris). Vous distinguerez alors sans peine la brillante étoile orangée Antarès située dans la constellation du Scorpion, plus près de l’horizon. L’ensemble s’observe jusqu’aux environs de 22h30, heure à laquelle Antarès se couche.

This is a ‘Clair-obscur effect caused by the rising Sun catching the peaks of Montes Jura whilst the floor of Sinus Iridum is still in darkness.

No, but I’ve just seen the ISS whizz over :grin:

Drat, I was stuck in a meeting and missed it… :pensive:

OK folks… 5pm ish tonight… let’s see who gets outside to take a peek…:thinking:

Too low in the sky for me, unfortunately.

Not even seen the sun for a month, let alone the moon :frowning:
