Dragon is leaving the station

It's detached but is still being held by the robot arm,
will be released in less than an hour.

1. Track the Dragon

Click on "Dragon", then "five day predictions" to see if the ISS (Zarya) will pass over your location this week:

It's an incredible sight to see the diamond bright satellites streak overhead at 17,000 mph. At that speed, they circle the Earth at just over once an hour. Seeing one chase the other from horizon to horizon in 8 minutes is a rare treat indeed.

It'll be on June 5th for me.
