I'm going to be able to see the ISS tonight.
In Seattle area, and it's clear!

Watching the ISS disappear into the Earth's shadow in the evening can
give me a felt sense of the height of the station's orbit. For pure
drama, I love seeing the ISS suddenly appear high in the western dawn
sky, blazing as brightly as Venus.

Midnight Sun bonanza
Seattleites will see five successive space station passes the night of
May 18–19. The times noted are when the ISS first appears (at ~10°
altitude) in the west. Click for a high resolution version.

be fine!)

It was clear. It was cool.
It was just past twilight, and it stayed in sunlight
the whole passage.
