Rickie Traeger: Spot The Space Station, Space-X Launch, Etc…




 Happy Tuesday! Quick shout out to everyone. Hopefully you have a good day today!

I get to go work on the vehicle today.  I hate working on vehicles. So that is my plans for the day, to fix the vehicle. Wish me luck! LOL.

As you know I love looking up at the stars at night time whenever I get the chance.  Lately it has been cold or cloudy. So, I have not had the chance to do that recently. But I been trying to keep up with the astronomy and space news

Space-X is doing a launch tomm!  If I recall, around 11:50 am. Watch it on Nasa TV.

While on the Nasa website, I found a really cool thing. It is called Spot The Station. They have the dates and times that you can spot the station. Below is for the Rockford area. If you are wondering about the degrees, hold out your arm and make a fist. Put your fist at the horizon. The top of your fist is approx. 10 degrees 🙂
