Planets: Mars will be 32° up in the SW, with Neptune nearby at 28°. Mars will appear rather small at 8.3 arc seconds apparent diameter. Uranus will be observable at 56° altitude in the South at 10pm.
Nebula and Star Clusters:
International Space Station (ISS): Any visible flyovers will be added closer to the observing date.
Iridium Satellites: These satellites can produce bright flares (brighter then Venus) from their antenna arrays. Any visible flares will be added closer to the observing date, as prediction accuracy improves.
