NASA TV Broadcasts Spacewalk on Tuesday Morning!

George N2APB
 

NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Chris Cassidy and are scheduled to depart the International Space Station’s Quest airlock Tuesday at 7:30am ET for a spacewalk to conduct a series of tasks in preparation for future upgrades to the station.  Set your alarm clocks (or your DVR) and tune in to the NASA TV channel or the agency's website for this historic event. Almost makes us want to don our own space garb and tag along! 

 

Details on our website (find some hidden clues) and at <https://blogs.nasa.gov/spacestation/2020/07/20/nasa-tv-broadcasts-spacewalk-on-tuesday/>

 

ALSO … a few new photos on our home page, as screen scraped below.

 

Enjoy!

Re: NEOWISE Comet

George,

There is a spot on the connector between Kingston Street ( where I live ) and 321 that has an excellent view of the horizon pretty much in all directions, especially East and West. 

Take 321 towards I-75, turn left onto Town Creek Blvd, go straight at the light at Cotton Mill Blvd, there is a pull off on both side of the road at the crest of the hill. It's a undeveloped area for shopping, lots of open land. Little to no street lights except for outlying areas.....

Lenoir City Police, and sometimes TN Hiway Patrol sit up there and shoot radar in both directions, so you may find an officer up there......

Happy hunting!

73,
Mike

Good info Michael, thank you!  Should be good viewing tonight if we can find a place high enough to look close to the NW horizon.  (Trees are in the way at most of my known spots.)  Will try viewing tonight at the top of Watt Rd just before the road descends to intersect with Rt 40. 

 

Anyone have other suggested high spots with good views to the NW?  (Around Tellico Lake area?)

 

Here is a larger view of what you posted …

The comet as viewed from Clingmans Dome in the Great Smoky Mountain Nation Park. This was captured by Mr. Williams, and shared by WBIR Weather.

A beautiful sight, isn't it?!?
