Viewing the ISS from Western North Carolina and Upper East Tennessee

VIEWING THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION AND HUBBLE TELESCOPE FROM WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA, UPPER EAST TENNESSEE and SOUTH WESTERN VIRGINIA
One of the cool things one can do when the sky is clear when you are out in the
country and away from man-made lights is to view the stars and large man-made
satellites. There are several objects that are in orbit but some are low in the
sky as seen from 36 N latitude. The brightest objects are the International
Space Station and the Hubble Telescope.
