The relatively dark skies of the northern Gulf of California make this an excellent place to see astronomical events. Tonight (Saturday 22nd. August) there will be a spectacular view of the International Space Station traveling almost directly over San Felipe between 7:50 and 7:51 p.m.
Go outside and look up to the northwest starting at 7:49 pm and you will see a brilliant object moving high in the sky (79 degrees) from northwest to the southeast over the coastline of Sonora. The ISS will disappear from view at 7:53pm when it is about as far south as the tip of Baja. Note that the times are precise, if you are a minute late you will miss it. A map of the track, as seen on the ground, is shown below. Don’t forget to wave at the crew as they go by!
