ISS

The International Space Station will make a pass over the Upstate tonight! Skies should be partly cloudy to clear, so keep an eye out! The flyover will begin at 9:29PM, and the space station will be visible for 3 minutes according to NASA.

When you go outside, look to the northwest where it should appear at 35 degrees above the horizon. It will move across the sky and disappear at 21 degrees above the southeast horizon. 

It will look like a bright, moving star.

This is not uncommon for the ISS to fly over the Upstate, but often they happen during the day (when you can't see it!) or very late at night. Tonight's flyover will be early enough for many to catch it. We actually had one earlier this week as well!
