ISS = International Space Station
HST = Hubble Space Telescope
Conjunction = two planets appear at their closest to each other in our sky.
Opposition = the planet is opposite the Sun in our sky.
Transit = the object crosses the face another (e.g., the Sun or Moon).
Occultation = the object passes behind another (e.g., the Sun or Moon).
Details of ISS and HST visible passes, transits and occultations are based on viewing from St James, Malanda - unless otherwise noted.
“The heavens proclaim the glory of God
and the firmament shows forth the work of his hands.
Day unto day takes up the story,
and night unto night makes known the message.
No speech, no word, no voice is heard
yet their span extends through all the earth,
their words to the utmost bounds of the world.”
