Discovery, ISS Visible Over NASA Langley
03.08.11
 
Amateur astronomers near NASA Langley, and even those who just want a glimpse of history, can get a rare look at space shuttle Discovery and the International Space Station at the same time on March 8 at about 7:25 p.m.

Streaking across the sky from northwest to southeast, Discovery, which is due to land at Kennedy Space Center on Wednesday for the final time, will be about a minute ahead of the ISS, beginning at 7:24:58 and continuing for almost three minutes. Peak elevation will be at 7:26:34, 73 degrees above the horizon, orbiting at 352.9 kilometers.
