Clear skies tonight will lead to perfect conditions to view the International Space Station.

The International Space State will appear in the northwest sky around 7:58 p.m. It will be about 72 degrees above the horizon, so almost directly over your head. You can see it for about six minutes as it moves across the sky, eventually dropping below the horizon in the east/southeast.

The ISS looks like a very bright star or airplane that is moving.
