When did Jesus ascend into Heaven?

At Easter dinner with friends last week I was embarrassed that I couldn’t remember how many days/weeks after the resurrection did Jesus ascend into Heaven? I was the only practicing Catholic (and not the best at it) in our group of about 10 people so several of the eyes were looking to me for an answer. I told them I would find out and return with an answer. I’m sure you can help me.

Thank you:shrug:
