International Space Station visible later tonight in the Quad Cities

Spot the ISS from the Quad Cities tonight

QUAD CITIES - With clear skies tonight we have a good opportunity to see the International Space Station racing by overhead!  

The ISS will be visible starting around 9:56 p.m. and should be visible to the naked eye for 4 minutes.

It will appear 19° above the Northern horizon and then disappear 4 minutes later 11° above the ENE horizon.  

The station will look like a star and is moving at about 17 thousand miles per hour!  The space station orbits at around 250 miles above the Earth's surface.  

If you miss it at 9:56 p.m. it makes another pass around 11:30 p.m.

That pass will last 2 minutes and peaks around 34° above the WNW horizon.  

Let me know if you have any luck spotting the ISS!
