First, tonight, a nice high ISS pass! Time: Tue Apr 09 8:15 PM,
Visible: 3 min, Max Height: 71°, Appears: 36° above WNW, Disappears: 19°
above SE. Sign up for your own alerts at the NASA "Spot The Station"
Next, /NASA's What's Up podcast/ continues with a new team, but three of
us Old Town Sidewalk Astronomers are credited in the April video with
image contributions here: https://youtu.be/iZAKN8IiUdU
Finally, Saturday night, some of us will be out with telescopes in
Monrovia from sunset (7 p.m. DST) and for about 2 hours after that, so
come on down to Library Park at the Myrtle and Lime corner. We'll be
looking at the Moon and Mars, maybe the Pleiades or some other things
not marred by light pollution. Watch /What's Up/ for some good viewing
suggestions for the whole month, including how to find Polaris, the
North Star! Hint: It is not bright, but is easy to find.
