ROSAT….the end is near

ROSAT  is going to decay and fall back to Earth this weekend.  I photographed the pass above Friday night at 6:32 PM.

It’s faint in the image above, but look above the tree line for the streak left behind by the failing satellite.

Check Heavens above .com to see if you have any visible passes before it’s too late.  Tonight’s pass was my last chance to see it.
