ISS Sighting Tonight

There is another opportunity to see the space station tonight for part of the midwest. Unfortunately, it looks like areas in southeast Missouri, western Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas will have cloud cover obscuring the view.


The details:

Chicago:
  • When: 6:42pm (local) - The space station will be visible for 5 minutes.
  • Where: Look to the WNW sky. The space station will travel across the sky and exit to the SE. It will reach a height of 55° above the horizon.
Columbus, IN:
  • When: 7:42pm (local) - The space station will be visible for 6 minutes.
  • Where: Look to the NW sky. The space station will travel across the sky and exit to the SE. It will reach a height of 73° above the horizon.
Indianapolis:
  • When: 7:41pm (local) - The space station will be visible for 6 minutes.
  • Where: Look to the WNW sky. The space station will travel across the sky and exit to the SE. It will reach a height of 68° above the horizon.
Moline:
  • When: 6:40pm (local) - The space station will be visible for 6 minutes.
  • Where: Look to the WNW sky. The space station will travel across the sky and exit to the ESE. It will reach a height of 79° above the horizon.
St. Louis:
  • When: 6:41pm (local) - The space station will be visible for 6 minutes.
  • Where: Look to the NW sky. The space station will travel across the sky and exit to the ESE. It will reach a height of 65° above the horizon.
Skies will be clear for the areas listed above so it should be perfect conditions to see the ISS as it passes overhead.

It will initially look like a dim star but it will be moving like an aircraft.

Check it out and let me know if you see it. Leave a comment here on my blog. Enjoy!
