Thanks to R. for sending: “530am or so (Saturday morning), over Columbia heights. Could that be the Starlink things? Meteor?”


And speaking of things in the sky, another reader writes:

“ISS Flying over DC at 8:35 PM tonight!

The International Space Station will be flying over DC tonight at an optimal viewing angle and the skies will be clear!

You will be able to view the ISS with the naked eye. You cant miss it as it will be bright and moving fast.


3/15/23 appearing at 8:35 PM
Max height of 64 degrees (nearly the best viewing angle)
Appears 10 degrees above SW
Disappears 10 degrees above E
Visible for 4 minutes”
