Skywatching opportunity: See space station twice in two nights

Get outside Wednesday and Thursday nights for chances to view the International Space Station fly over the region.

Wednesday, the spacecraft will appear as a bright, swiftly moving light on the northwest horizon just before 9:44 p.m. It will move three-quarters of the way up in the sky as it goes toward the west-southwest before disappearing into the Earth’s shadow about 9:47 p.m.

Thursday night, look to the northwest horizon at 8:47 p.m. The space station will zip toward the southeast, rising about halfway up the night sky before slipping behind the east-southeast horizon just before 8:53 p.m.

On board are two NASA astronauts, three Russian cosmonauts and a European Space Agency astronaut. Read more about their mission here.
