Long Description:
On March 19, the International Space Station made a flight from SW to NE over Bethany, Oklahoma. It reached a max altitude of 66° at 20:44:43 and a brightness of -3.4.

The weather wasn't promising for a sighting, clouds had moved in just before sundown. But at 20:41 I went out and saw a hazy Venus thru the clouds, and kept watch. Finally the ISS appeared out of the clouds, very hazy but visible. I was able to see it for a bit over 1/3 of it's path until it went into heavier clouds.

From here, it went over Warrenton, Missouri where YoSam. was watching for it. It reached max altitude of 58° at 20:46:21 and a brightness of -3.2.

The ISS flew 1 minute 38 seconds traveling 424 miles from Bethany to Warrenton.
