A great International Space Station viewing will occur tonight in Richmond from about 5:29-5:34 p.m. Just look Northwest to Southeast as the ISS passes directly overhead. Look for a bright white dot moving smoothly across the sky (at about 17,227 mph!). The ISS orbits the Earth 15.7 times per day at an altitude between 173 mi and 286 mi.
A few clouds may occasionally obscure your view of the Space Station, but skies will generally be clear enough to spot the light this evening. If you want to find the specific viewing opportunity for your location, click here.
