ISS flyover at 8:33

The International Space Station (ISS) will do a fly over at 8:33 this evening! The moon doesn’t rise until 9:25, so the sky will be nice and dark for the fly over.

The station will approach from the southwest (just south from where the sun sets) and will travel northward across the sky toward the northwestern horizon. In other words, it will travel in an arc across where the sun set.

The station will be visible for three minutes and will rise as high as 42 degrees up into the sky.
