St. Paul native Heidi Stefanyshyn-Piper, who became big news as the first woman to lead a space walk and also the astronaut to lose a $100,000 tool kit in space, will pass over the skies of the Twin Cities tonight during dinner time, the Star Tribune says.
The shuttle passes through the skies over Minneapolis-St. Paul at 5:51 p.m., according to NASA's latest calculation. Celestial dreamers should start by looking in the western sky at about 22 degrees above the horizon. Within three minutes, the shuttle will be in the north-northeast sky at 25 degrees and then disappear from sight.
Space Station viewing in the metro starts a minute later, starting in the north-northwest sky at 22 degrees above the horizon and ending three minutes later at 24 degrees in the north-northeast sky.If you squint hard enough, you might see the tool kit pass by too. And is it just us, or do NASA astronauts always look like they are stuck in really random decades that are no longer cool? Check out those bangs. Maybe it's just those ridiculous suits they wear.
