New “Space!” Section Added with Night Sky Map & ISS Sightings

New Space Section

We just added a new Space! section to Livermore Rocks! It includes…

  • An International Space Stations (ISS) sightings schedule. It’ll let you know when and where to look as the ISS passes over Livermore. It’s fun to watch.
  • A Night Sky Map as the stars and planets look from Livermore. The map is interactive and updates every second. It’s a neat tool to see what’s above us right now.

Check it out by clicking the Space! button in the menu above.
