SOE Alumni Association

The SOE Alumni Association supports SOE’s mission of effectively preparing educators and other education personnel for professional performance in diverse cultural contexts. It serves as a connection for which SOE alumni can give back to their alma mater by sharing their talents, resources, etc. in different SOE events. It further serves as a source for developing alumni pride, spirit, and life-long commitments to the School of Education.

Bright Pass of the International Space Station

If you’re an early riser, you might want to plan to be outside looking up this coming Friday morning, 9 October, at around 5:30 a.m. The ISS is making a close pass overhead and will shine at an incredible –3.3 magnitude which is almost as bright as Venus gets.

The ISS will appear 10 degrees above the southwestern horizon at 5:34 a.m. on Friday morning. It will then track high in the western sky (opposite where the Sun will rise). It will reach a maximum altitude of 60 degrees at 5:37 a.m. and disappear over the north-northeastern horizon at 5:40 a.m. If it isn’t very cloudy, at that magnitude you’re pretty much guaranteed to see it.
