Tonight brings an object to the night sky you’ll want to see


Well tonight is an exciting night and we only have a limited time to take advantage of it. Part of the 39th expedition of the international space station will be at view again tonight so if you’ve missed it, tonight may be your chance to see.

At 10:16 pm the I.S.S. will gloss in the sky. If you find a fairly open area to settle in you can catch the spectacular sight at 28 degrees out of the western horizon. Now you only have just about 2 minutes to catch the station at that time.

The I.S.S. will be the third brightest object while you’re taking a gander the sky. Now why can we see the I.S.S. at night, well the space station is visible because it is reflecting light from the sun. This is the same reason that the moon appears to shine. Even when the moon hasn’t risen, you’ll still be able to see the space station.

Now there will be other chances if you miss out the space station will be visible Thursday night and then lastly on Saturday.
