— The International Space Station is circling the Earth every 90 minutes!
You don’t need a telescope to find the ISS, just knowledge of when it will be visible in your area.
In Dayton, the ISS will be visible to the naked eye two more times through Friday.
Thursday at 11:11 p.m., the ISS will be about 48 degrees above the horizon and will travel from the west/southwest to the northeast in about 6 minutes again.
Friday, the ISS will be about 41 degrees above the horizon for a flyover around 5:40 a.m.
The higher the International Space Station is above 40 degrees, the easier it is to see. Look for a bright object in the night or early morning sky that moves like a plane, but doesn’t have flashing lights or change direction.
