If you have an open skies, you can wave on the newest astronauts of Canada while you are sailing across the sky at the International Space Station.
David St Jacques came to the station on Monday with the US astronaut Ann McClane and Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko.
This is his first trip to Saint-Jacques in 2009 with Jeremy Hansen.
Trio joins other three people: German Alexander Gerst, American Serena Aunan-Chancellor and Russian Prod. Sergei Prokopev.
How do you know if you are not an airplane, not a space station? The biggest node is that if the item is flashing, it's an airplane. In addition, the station is moving slower than the aircraft.
The ISS looks like it shows solar panels. The layout and angle of the station will change the brightness of the panels.
In time we have the right to see our newest astronaut. In the Canadian territory, if the weather is allowed, in the next 10 days you can see the bright light of the orbital laboratory around the night sky.
Time and place
Take a walk in Vancouver and Victoria at 5:15 am this morning at 5:15 am PT and you can be brave about Saint-Jacques because the station rises in the west and goes about 5:21. This is particularly bright, and it is unlikely that you miss it.
Calgary and Edmonton, Saint Jacques and crews will be held at about 6:17. Westward to the west and to the east. This passage is vivid rather than Vancouver. The station will disappear just before reaching the eastern horizons.
People in Regina and Saskatoon will also have a chance to pass. The ISS will rise in the west at 5:45. CT and 5:48 hr.
Winemakers should start at 5:45. The CT sees it going from west to east.
Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal, if the sky is open, to 5:12. ET for five minutes pass. Although this is not a very bright pass, the ISS will be nearly as easy as 5:14 at crossing the large dipper.
At Atlantic Canada, it is possible to see the ISS at 6:15 no later than. AT 6:18 hr. Under Big Dipper. It's a good chance to climb up at 5:20 on Thursday. north-west to the north-east, most of the sky crosses.
Not from the North: I amn Iqaluit, the ISP falls southward to the south-east and goes straight to Mars before disappearing.
On Whitehorse on Wednesdays, at 5:30, you can see the MSS. PT. The station passes horizontally below the Mars at 5:20 am.
Finally, in Yellowknife, six astronauts cross the sky at 4:45 am on Wednesday. and at 6:20. MT in a real place like Whitehorse.
The station stays in the night sky for about 10 days, depending on the location. Several days before Christmas, she goes to the sky.
To keep your station up-to-date, you can visit Heavens Above and submit it to you. In the meantime, you can print the day you provide the card. Of course, there is always NASA's Spot Station.
