watched ISS jump over Jupiter (Blue Mountains)

I noticed that a pass of the International Space Station was due. Checked the details in ISS Detector Pro.

From the front deck we picked up the ISS in the west. Ian W tagged it first. It flew over Jupiter helping us gauge the magnitude. It was almost the same brightness. Tony tracked with his binoculars. Noted stars zipping past. A long pass, it faded as it flew right by Antares. Nice. Grace enjoyed that.

Ian asked how many were on board. It was not a full crew.

I pinged Rhonda. She caught the end.
