During this time exposure made around 10:55 p.m. on May 15, the space station cuts through the band of the Milky Way as it heads toward the eastern horizon. Multiple passes are visible each night for about the next two weeks.

The Curiosity, the Perseverance and China's Mars rover Zhurong are all trundling (or parked) on the red planet at the moment ...

China's answer to Starlink is hoping to add 13,000 satellites to the orbit already home to Starlink's 1600 ... here's an interesting article from March about possible effects on the planet if Elon Musk gets his way and can add 42,000.

Meanwhile, there's a terrific chance to see the International Space Station all night long over the next week or so, and next Wednesday, plan to get up early for the Super Blood Moon Eclipse early in the morning!
