Hi all, the weather looks excellent for astronomy tonight in Pasadena.
Jane and I will set up in Old Town Pasadena on Colorado Blvd., somewhere
near Delacey. We look for a parking spot on the north side of the
street somewhere in the two-block stretch between Fair Oaks and Pasadena
Av. We'll plan to be there from about 7:30 'til 10.
We'll have a large gibbous moon tonight, and a good look at Jupiter.
Tonight at 7:55 the International Space Station will fly almost directly
overhead, visible from anywhere in L.A. county. Look for it like a
bright slowly moving star, beginning in the northwest, and passing to
the southeast. It'll be brighter than any other stars, and it won't
have blinking lights like an airplane. It takes about five minutes for
it to cross the sky.
Tomorrow (Saturday) we'll set up in Monrovia at the corner of Myrtle and
Lime, from about 7:30 'til 10, with a slightly bigger moon.
Later we'll update you on the total lunar eclipse visible early Tuesday
