The ISS soars the Hawaiian skies

The International Space Station will be seen on the Hawaiian skies over the course of the following days if the weather is permitting.

When will it happen? Here are some timelines:

On the first hours of Friday, the ISS will be visible in the northwest after 5:40 a.m. and it will arc across the top of the sky. On its way to the top, the International Space Station will fly on the right side of the Capella star and the Gemini constellation.

The space station will then begin descending toward Diamond Head and then go dark at around 5:45 a.m.

After 7 p.m on Sunday, the space station will rise from the southwest, to the left of the line that unites Saturn, Jupiter and Venus. However, a very clear view of the skyline is required for the phenomenon to be observed.

At about 6:12 p.m next Monday, the planets will be aligned again and the ISS will rise in the south-southwest, then move a bit to the left, rising about a third of the way and then it will become unobservable.

Ultimately, on Wednesday at about 6:12 p.m, the ISS will rise below Venus in the southwest and then move to the right, passing under the Vega star and above the North star. It will blink out in the northeast at about 6:18 p.m.

Who is on the space station currently?

A team of 6 astronauts is at the board of the International Space Station at the moment. Two of the members are Christina Koch and Jessica Meir, who managed to make repairs to the solar power network of the station last month.
