See Endeavour and the ISS tonight (maybe)
The space shuttle Endeavour is on its way to the ISS for the last time. Tonight (Wednesday 18 May), Australians have a chance to see the two of them flying together in our skies.
Except the view will be rubbish, both the ISS and the shuttle rise only a short way above the horizon before they disappear into the Earths' shadow. They may be entirely blocked from view if you have a cluttered horizon.
Your view is highly location dependent, so visit Heavens Above for the exact circumstances for your location.
