The weekend sky is going to get really crowded. Today we will be able to see the flight of the International Space Station and the Falcon 9 rockets. The next day the ceiling will be blocked by the Starlink space train.
This weekend will provide us with a very cosmic experience. As Night Sky notes, the season of evening flights to the International Space Station has begun, which can be clearly seen from Poland. The second issue is the flight of the Falcon 9 rocket, which we will be able to watch tonight. Third, another Starlink mission begins.
The International Space Station will appear for the first time in the sky on Saturday, May 14 at 10:33 PM. You will fly from the southwest to the east. On the same day, at 22:40, another Starlink mission also begins, but we will have to wait until Sunday for the space train to fly over the skies of Poland. Meanwhile, on Saturday at 23.00 we will be able to observe the flight of the Falcon 9 rocket from Poland – it will appear in the west and fly in the southwest direction.
The 53 Starlinków space train, which starts today from Florida, will appear in the skies over Poland on Sunday, May 15 at approximately 21:40. Satellites will fly over Poland from west to east in the sky. Accompanied by Starlinks, the International Space Station will fly again. The International Space Station will arrive in the southwest at 21:45 and fly east. The lucky ones – if the weather is fine – will be able to see the new Starlinki and the ISS at the same time.
