Fireworks, Heavenly Bodies, and a Spaceship...Oh My!

Happy 4th of July everyone.

While millions of Americans stare up at the sky to watch fireworks, or maybe some cheap bottlerockets, there will be another kind of show for everyone to see.




In the evening, on the 4th of July, the Moon and Jupiter will appear side by side - providing a neat little twilight show for you to enjoy.







Also, keep your eyes out for the International Space Station (ISS) flying overhead. It will be visible to the naked eye, and it's going to make a very appropriate trip on the 4th. At 9:40 EST, the ISS will be orbiting directly above Valley Forge...and then Philadelphia, the place where the Declaration of Independence was signed.

Very cool, huh?

If you want, you can go here to SkyWatch and find out when the International Space Station is going to be flying near you. How do you know you're seeing the space station when you're looking up into the night sky? It's going to be reflecting the sun, so it won't twinkle. Also, it will be moving. If it's not the space station you see, then it's a UFO...and get the hell outta there!

I hope you have a safe, fantastic Independence Day.

Happy 4th.
I am glad he enjoyed the gifts and it was great meeting you too!!!
The funniest thing I heard at a fireworks display was a conversation between children--one said to the other, "Shhh, I can't see the fireworks when you talk".
Don't know why that was relevant for this post, but the post made me think of that memory.

KC said...

Happy 4th, Phoenix! Cool post. I'm going to see if I can find the ISS tonight or tomorrow night.

Hey, angel jr.... loved that kids quote about the fireworks. I literally laughed at loud. But that's ok cuz I'm by myself and I didn't startle anyone with my guffaw.

Happy Independence Day!!
Light some sparklers, but don't catch your hair on fire!!
My son is already gathering the fireworks. His inner arson is in full swing. :)

Pixie said...

Cool, I think I will take a look at the sky to see if I can spot jupiter.

Carmel said...

Happy 4th of July to you. How I wish I had bought that nice looking telescope in the store!

O Ceallaigh said...

Y'know, I hate to be a curmudgeon here (obviously I don't hate it that much or there would be just another "Happy 4th!" comment in this box).

But I can't watch fireworks, or watch people watching fireworks, without thinking of all these people hootin' and hollerin' and then gettin' into their SUVs with the yellow ribbons on them and driving home.

As if fireworks weren't gunpowder. Stone Age shock and awe. The rocket's red glare, / The bombs bursting in air in deadly earnest.

If I'm seeing any sky through the San Francisco Bay stratus tomorrow, it'll be looking at Jupiter. Perhaps he'll provide some enlightenment. Or not. He was a pretty wanton, hypocritical old goat himself.

kim said...

Hey cool! I'll do some sky watching out here in the wilds of St. Louis! Thanks for the tip!

4th of july...

...get a *bang* outa it!!

Jim said...

I was thinking of the other Declaration of Independence, the one signed at Independence Hall (officially known as the Pennsylvania State House)in Philadelphia.

The Phoenix said...

Jim, I had to fix that. I left out a part there in that sentence. George Washington never even signed the Declaration of Independence, as he was no longer a memeber of the Continental Congress, but was preparing to battle the British in New York City.

Denny Shane said...

thanks for the skywatch link... i may just go there and watch out for it tonight. happy 4th!

Mimi said...

Oh man I missed it!

Happy and safe 4th Phoenix!:)

:P fuzzbox said...

It was cloudy so I missed it. Dang.

Reiki said...

guess I missed the heavenly bodies. That's ok, I'll just get nekkid and look in the mirror.

hope all is well phoenix...just wanted to say hello.

Perplexio said...

Yeah I saw something I thought was the space station... but then I must have dozed off because next thing I knew I was waking up in my bed and my ass was really sore...
