ISS This Morning

   This morning the International Space Station, ISS, made a short but sweet appearance when it popped into view just west from the ‘Little Dog’ star Procyon. It’s 3-minute path carried past Procyon and then down toward the southeastern horizon passing the star Alphard in the constellation Hydra the Snake. The last quarter Moon was near the star Regulus in Leo the Lion, and as an added there was an Iridium Satellite rising up from the southern horizon.
