Spot the International Space Station Tonight

The International Space Station will pass over Connecticut for three minutes this evening.

Weather conditions should permit viewing the station, though there will be thin, high clouds overhead.

The clouds will be at about 17,000 feet above ground, but they should be thin enough to see through.

The small, fast-moving bright light will appear just above the southwest horizon and quickly rise to a max height of 76 degrees.

The appearance will last three minutes, from 8:56 p.m. to 8:59 p.m.

It will disappear high in the southern sky.

Most sightings of the ISS are lower in the sky, so tonight, be prepared to look very high in the sky.
