Miguel had sent a message a little over a week ago that he might have
a lead but haven't anything so I only have us listed as having our
monthly meeting on the Caltech Today website.
btw, the Space Station will be visible tonight from the LA area
tonight, 6/10. From the Old Town Sidewalk Astronomer's mailing list:
"The station will first be visible low in the northwest (to the right
of where the sun set) at about 8:44 p.m. By 8:46 it will reach its
maximum visible altitude of 58 degrees, and will fly past Mars,
Saturn, and the first quarter moon, in that order. By 8:50 it will
disappear in the southeast entering earth's shadow.
The station is so bright now with its added modules and solar arrays,
it will be the brightest thing in the sky besides the moon. Space
shuttle Discovery is currently docked to the station, and it's fun to
keep in mind that there are ten astronauts on that bright moving star
as it passes overhead.

The station has no lighting of its own. The brightness is sunlight
reflected off the station. If you're following an object with red or
blinking lights, that's not the space station. "
