Montfort Astronomy Club Witnesses International Space Station FlyOver
The Montfort Academy Astronomy Club gathered on the schools roof yesterday evening at about 4:45 to view the beautiful crescent moon (photos below courtesy of Astronomy Club Vice President Evan Iervolino) as well as to witness a flyover of the International Space Station. As predicted, at about 4:53 pm, the ISS appears, glowing in the sunlight reflecting off its surface. It moved in an arc path that seemed to peak right around Polaris, the North Star, and then began to descend. The transit over Montfort took about 4 minutes. A video is posted below.
