Hobart – Your turn to watch the Space Station pass very close to Venus and Jupiter Thursday night (9 July 2015)
(Posted 8 July 2015) As seen from Hobart, the International Space Station will put on another show tomorrow night (Thursday 9 July 2015) when it passes very close to Venus and Jupiter. Just look for a bright slowly moving star moving as per the below chart.
The above map (thanks to Heavens-Above.com) shows the view from the the Hobart CBD.
If you are unfamiliar with the night sky, then use the above chart. Unfortunately for the rest of Australia, this is a close encounter we miss out on due to the angle of the International Space Station’s orbit relative to the Equator.
