You have multiple chances to see the International Space Station fly overhead this week.

At over 250 miles above the earth, traveling at over 4 miles per second, the I.S.S. can be seen each morning this week and into the weekend.

The I.S.S. will look like a moving start. The difference between the space station and a plane, is that a plane will have blinking lights, whereas the space station will be a solid bright light.

However cloud cover and rain may put a damper on things most of this week.

You can see the I.S.S.:

- Tuesday at 5:30 a.m. moving from South-Southwest to East

- Wednesday at 4:41 a.m. moving from South-Southeast to East

- Thursday at 5:25 a.m. moving from West-Southwest to Northeast

- Friday at 4:36 a.m. moving from South-Southeast to East-Northeast

- Saturday at 5:20 a.m. moving from West to North-Northeast

Again though, cloud cover will make it a little tough to see the I.S.S. for most of the week, but visibility should be better as we head towards the weekend.
