LightSail 2 estimated viewing range
LightSail 2 will fly in a 24-degree inclination orbit, which will keep it closer to the equator than LightSail 1. We estimate this will restrict viewing to latitudes less than 42 degrees north or south (at 42 degrees, LightSail 2 will never rise higher than 10 degrees from the horizon).
