August 21st - ISS/Endeavour Tandem Flyby...
The International Space Station (ISS) and Space
Shuttle Endeavour made a tandem flyby over
Colorado on Monday evening treating local
skywatchers to a wonderful view of the pair.
Endeavour undocked from the ISS on Sunday and is
expected to return home today with landing at the
Kennedy Space Center scheduled for 10:32AM MDT
International Space Station will continue passing
over Colorado for the next couple of evenings with
the best viewing opportunity being Wednesday
night. The ISS will then pass from the WNW
beginning at 8:09PM local time, passing almost
directly overhead before finally disappearing into the
Earth's shadow in the SE at 8:15PM. Due to the
addition of new solar arrays, the ISS will be
quite bright and clearly visible in our skies,
weather of course permitting.
This will be a
great opportunity to see the orbiting ISS and a
wonderful family experience. Children are
especially spellbound by it. Make a note
and if you can, step outside this Wednesday
evening and enjoy this amazing sight.

Narrow-leaved Blazing Star is perennial from a heavy, taprooted rootcrown. Plants usually are about 10-18 inches tall. The narrow, sandpapery leaves point strongly upward and are covered with tiny dots of resin. Bottom leaves are about four inches long, but get progressively smaller toward the top of the plant. One-to-two dozen light purple (rarely white) flower heads about 1/2 inch wide form spikes on the upper one third of the plant. The tiny achenes (seeds) bear a plume of bristles.
