The ISS will cross our sky TWICE tonight!
The International Space Station (ISS) will be making a pair of passes across our sky this evening.
You will be able to view the first one at around 9:45 as it rises from our northern sky. At a blazing speed of 17,500 mph, it will cross our northern sky in about 4 minutes total time as it moves swiftly off to the east. It will only rise to a maximum height of 22° so you will need a good view of our northeastern horizon.
The second crossing will occur about an hour and a half later at 11:21 PM. The second one will also go higher in the sky and will rise from the WNW before disappearing to the WSW. With a max height of 40°, any good view of the western horizon should do.
The sky is expected to be partly cloudy and overall viewing should be pretty good especially for the second crossing.
