There are three prime opportunities to see the International Space Station fly over Baltimore over the next week. For those who saw its last pass-over in October, the show should be just as spectacular.
In each case, look for a bright light more brilliant than a star but more distant than a plane, zipping steadily across the sky. You'll know it when you see it.
Clear skies are in the forecast for Wednesday and Friday nights, so set yourself a reminder to go outside and take a look.
A new mission aboard the space station began in October. NASA astronaut Kevin Ford is the new commander, leading a crew that includes on other NASA astronaut, three Russian cosmonauts and a Canadian Space Agency astronaut. Read more about the crew on NASA's website.
