ISS over Regina

I was checking to see the next time the International Space Station would fly over Regina’s skies, and saw it was in two minutes! (There are only a few times a week it is visible for a couple minutes, sometimes none.) I threw on my ski pants and coat, and grabbed my camera (and card out of the computer), then flew down the stairs and outside. I even remembered my little tripod to hold the camera properly for a night shot. It’s dark in Regina at 5:50pm still, and will be for another month or two.

  1. I love to watch the night sky too! A side benefit of being guest artist in residence at Cypress Hills in SK was the ability to visit the new observatory there frequently! I hear there is a meteor event this Jan. 3 – 4th. How would I find out the best time to view it from my location?
