Simple Satelllite Tracking
There are hundreds of spacecraft in Earth orbit and most are visible from your back yard--if you know when to look. We cut through the confusion by narrowing the list to a handful of the brightest and most interesting. At the moment we're monitoring the Lacrosse 3 spy satellite, the International Space Station, the Early Ammonia Servicer and NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. Check your flyby times and enjoy the show! Feedback is welcomed.

  ISS over Dallas, Texas

  "It is amazing how bright the ISS is," says photographer Bret Dahl. "I took this picture through my 10-inch Meade LX-200."  
  ISS over Kent, England

A solar wind stream hit Earth on April 23rd causing geomagnetic storms and Northern Lights around the Arctic Circle. See also March 2008. This is Aurora Australis backlighting the South Pole Telescope (a cosmic microwave background telescope, http://spt.uchicago.edu) which is bathed in moonlight at the geographic South Pole, where the sun has set for 6 months. J. Dana Hrubes Winterover, South Pole Telescope; Station Science Leader; Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, Antarctica Tonight, with a group of young teenagers from south, we went to see the northern lights. Because of the clouds, the night was very short. Photo details: Canon EOS 30D, 10mm, f3,5, 800 ISO, 15 sec. I went out to try out my new equatorial mount this evening and found out that there were green lights out there. Photo details: Pentax K10D, K20D, 20mm, 24mm The nordic sky is gradually getting brighter and brighter as we approach summer. However, it still gets sufficient dark at midnight (62nd Lat.N). I got out just after midnight (April 23/24, 2008) local time, and shot a few images of the auroras. Here are a couple. Photo details: Canon EOS 450D, 18-55 mm lens, ISO: 800, exp: 60 - 65 sec, tripod, RC-5. This was taken looking over the Athabasca river in Fort McMurray Alberta with Syncrude Canada in the background.
