Entry Sighting Opportunities for STS-95

NOTE: THESE SIGHTINGS ARE BASED ON THE ACTUAL LAUNCH WHICH WAS SLIPPED TO 19:19 GMT ON THURSDAY OCTOBER 29, 1998. THE TIMESPAN OF THESE OPPORTUNITIES ARE THROUGH NOMINAL LANDING AT 17:05 GMT ON SATURDAY NOVEMBER 7, 1998. THESE SIGHTINGS WILL BE UPDATED AS OFTEN AS NEEDED AND AS TIME PERMITS.
Tracking Software
THESE SIGHTINGS WILL BE UPDATED AS NECESSARY. Shuttle Sighting Opportunities Program (SSOP) predictions adopt visibility criteria determined by the following "filters".
  • 1) Apparent spacecraft elevation greater than 10 degrees
  • 2) Local solar elevation less than -6 degrees
  • 3) Spacecraft in sunlight
  • 4) Apparent spacecraft solar elongation greater than 75 degrees. Tabular entries are defined below.
  • Date/TIME: local time at which spacecraft first satisfies all visibility criteria.
  • DURATION: period of time (> 45 seconds) during which spacecraft satisfies all visibility criteria.
  • MAX ELEV: maximum angle spacecraft will achieve above local horizon. The greatest possible value of 90 degrees corresponds to overhead.
  • APPEARING: direction (true azimuth) and elevation at which spacecraft first satisfies all visibility criteria.
  • MOVING TO: direction (true azimuth) and elevation at which spacecraft last satisfies all visibility criteria.
These predictions are computed by NASA Johnson Space Center's Flight Design & Dynamics Division. Questions and comments may be directed to Hung D. Tran at EMAIL hung.d.tran1@jsc.nasa.gov.

Raymondville, TX 15:00:26 UTC 34.0 S (173.2) 26.9 5:58 Note: These times and elevations are at the point of closest approach (peak elevation) for each city. ELSUN is the Sun's elevation for that city at that time. BOOM is the estimated length of time (MIN:SEC) after closest approach when the sonic boom may be heard. It is unlikely that the boom will be heard if peak elevation is less than 20 deg. The entry plasma trail will not be visible in daylight.
