Social media was filled with photos of the night sky! Two spacecraft passed through Mackay last night. Graham Moyle from the Mackay Skywatchers said "those looking to the skies would be able to spot the International Space Station and the Hubble Space Telescope as both passed over the region in the one night. 

The International Space Station passed over Mackay at 7:37pm. The Hubble Space Telescope passed by at 7:24 pm.

                                           The Hubble Space Telescope and the International Space Station will both be visible to skywatchers as they orbit through the Mackay sky this evening.
