BALTIMORE — BALTIMORE - The dry air has returned across Central Maryland but so has the heat and humidity. Partly cloudy skies tonight give us ample opportunity to look up into the mysterious sky above for stars, planets, and yes the International Space Station as it flies on by. Can you "Spot The Station"?
Well tonight is your night as the Space Station is expected to pass right over Maryland. This evening the station will fly by for 3 mins starting at 9:25pm moving west to south southeast in the sky. Viewing conditions look okay with puffy cumulus across the area.
Besides the fly by you will have the opportunity to see the young moon, Mercury, and the Delta Aquariids/Perseids meteor showers after sunset. Speaking of the Perseids Meteor Shower it looks to peak between August 9-13th.
For now let's enjoy the stalled front to our south and limited energy for storms during the overnight hours for a "SkyWatchers Delight" type of evening. Happy hunting, and remember to wave at those astronauts as they speed on by!!!
