About Hubble
 
heavens-above.com
  • Provides the ability to enter your location to determine when Hubble will pass overhead. Provided that Hubble passes closely enough overhead, it is relatively dark, and the skies are clear enough, Hubble can be seen with the naked-eye. It appears as a fast moving spec of light. It is possible to see even more with a telescope.
