With clear skies locked in place tonight, it’s a great night to see the International Space Station zipping by overhead!

It won’t get directly overhead, but it reaches a max height of 57°.  45° would be halfway up and 90° would be directly overhead.

It appears at 8:36 p.m. and will be visible for about 4 minutes.

It shows up in the SW sky and goes out of sight in the Eastern sky.

It will look like the brightest star in the sky and move at a constant speed.  While it might not look like it’s moving quickly, it is.  It’s racing by at about 17,000 miles per hour!
