Have you ever seen an Iridium flare? I have! They occur almost daily, but you must be looking in the right place at the right time!
Predictions for flares, satellite passings, comets and more can be found at the Heavens - Above Web Site. You will need to provide your Latitude and Longitude information to configure this website for your viewing. We have set the location initially for central Joplin, Missouri.
Weatherbug reporting stations and CAMS around the nation. This is the weather report from North Middle School in Joplin.
I like astronomy, and have seen two comets and several meteor showers. However, you must know when and where to look. At GARY W. KRONK'S Comets and Meteor Shower Page there is information on Meteor Shower dates, and much more about the sky!
