At 8:53 ISS will be visible for 6 minutes beginning at 300 (WSW) at 10 degrees off the horizon travelling SSE at about 17,000 mph (27,500 kph)

Then if you turn around, at 9:00 you can see a few Starlink satellites going from 332 (NNW) to SE.

Some of us just fell off a turnip truck.
Can you explain the significance of your erudite post?

Just back in, we turned off the motion detector lights, sprawled in the pool deck loungers and watched the show.

Thanks so much for the heads up, we try to keep track of the ISS, usually seeing it on the beach, early morning when we do the dogs.

Lovely end to a LONG COVID vaccination day!!! Gracias

WOW!!! Thanks!!

Well..... considering it's a modern object, probably not, but depending upon what you follow, or how you think, how about Maybe.

WOW!!! Thanks!!
