Bright Pass of ISS above Venus Tonight! (September 26)
For exact predictions for your location see Heavens Above. http://www.heavens-above.com/
I stopped pedalling home and watched the ISS go past Crux from Lake Macquarie. Heavens Above said Molniya and Cygnus should be visible but I didn't see them. I did see something going another direction.
I tried last night too for Cygnus and didn't see it.
Oh we'll it was still a sky magic show with all those planets and the ISS. I'll try for Cygnus again tomorrow night when the sky will be darker - 1930 and clearer air from the south...
I couldn't see Cygnus either, even though it should have been readily visible at magnitude 2. My next shot at Cygnus will be in a couple of days time.
I'll have another try for Cygnus tonight
