SSTV October 29, 2018, 241 am 4G1AWN

SSTV image received and decoded from the International Space Station (ISS) as it passes over the Philippines on October 29, 2018, around 2:41 local time

The International Space Station (ISS) has been transmitting images since October 28 and will continue to do so in the next few days. It transmits in SSTV format—the same format used to send images to Earth during the Apollo missions. The transmissions can be received with any radio tuned at 145.8 MHz, and a decoder app such as Robot 36 (try installing that app and decode this recording).

The International Space Station (ISS) currently orbiting approximately 400 kilometers above the Earth’s surface will treat us with yet another spectacular sight on the early morning of November 11, 2012, as it zooms past, for the second time this week, above the Philippines.

The satellite will be visible to us because its solar panels will be geometrically well-placed to reflect sunlight towards the ground, acting like giant space mirrors. From the ground, it will look like a very bright flare coming from the southwestern horizon and then slowly (much like an airplane) move towards the north-northeastern horizon until it disappears from view. It will be visible for approximately 6 minutes, from 04:57:09 am to 05:05:49 am and will be visible to the naked eye. No special equipment is required to observe the satellite flyby. For previous ISS observations, click here.
