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.
