A little different then the silver ball we are used too. Wow I can’t believe they launched this temporary satellite. 9 months till it falls out of orbit and burns up. https://www.thehumanitystar.com/ Is their website where you can punch in your location for your best viewing opportunity and read the faq about it. Just wanted to share.

Whew, thought you might have had some insider information. I’m glad it’s not like a massive plane contrail conspiracy thing where it’s full of some substance to wipe all of humanity out when it burns up reentering our atmosphere!

Thought I would bump this for those in California, This will be visible in approximately 36 hours! Only a 5 minute viewing window.

Looks like I'll have an opportunity to see it Tuesday morning. Sky should be clear and looks like maybe a half hour before sunrise.

Here's the best video I could find, just to give you an idea....

#15 1 year ago

Yeah, I watched that video after I didn’t see it. It was a bit light out and maybe I was looking in the wrong direction...I think the next opportunity it will be earlier in the morning (dark out) and I will have a better chance.

Visible in California in 3 minutes for 4 minutes. North 10 degrees

#17 1 year ago

I have partly cloudy skies and I believe I won’t see it though...hopefully diff in your area.

#18 1 year ago

Guess I’ll have to try again in 3 days

#19 1 year ago

I didn't see it last go around. It's visible tonight a little before 10 PM for me. Skies are supposed to be clear. I think this my best chance.

#20 1 year ago

Saw it, but it wasn't totally dark so just caught the brightest few flashes. Hopefully, I'll get some better opportunities when it is completely dark.

Says that the humanity star burned up and is no longer in orbit. Oh well I never got to see it.
