Long Description:
While I did not have any 'Black Friday' shopping to do, I did get up early on the morning of the 26th of November to drive to a small park where light pollution is not so severe to see the second leg of the ISS's journey.

Chapterhouseinc in Boulder City, NV is Site 1 for this Waymark.

The ISS was clearly visible at my location starting at 6:30am MST coming from WSW reaching a maximum elevation of 65°/67° while traveling to the NE. It was visible for 3 minutes and came as close as 243 miles (385 kilometers) at its maximum height. Maximum altitude was at 6:31:46am which is about when I took the photograph. The ISS traveled 597.21 miles NE (61°) [961.12 kilometers] in 1 minute, 11 seconds from Boulder City, NV at maximum altitude time of 05:30:35am PST to 06:31:46am MST in Thornton, CO. The magnitude of this orbit was -3.6. (from (visit link) and (visit link) )
