International Space station will be visible Friday night over North Country

Stargazers will have the chance tonight to take a look at the International Space Station. The space station will be visible this evening just after sunset--but St. Lawrence University astronomer Jeffrey Miller says it should be easy to spot with the naked eye, even in the bright early-nighttime sky.

If you start looking at about 8:07, toward the southwest horizon, about 10 degrees above the horizon…you’ll start to see something that looks like a small star that appears to be moving. It’ll be gliding slowly sort of up and towards your left, and as it gets higher in the sky it should get fairly bright, much brighter as it reaches higher.

The space station was also visible last night. It’s expected to reach its highest point at 8:11—and be visible until 8:14.
