Spot The Space Station

BALTIMORE — The dry air has returned across Central Maryland but so has the heat and humidity. Partly cloudy skies tonight give us ample opportunity to look up into the mysterious sky above for stars, planets, and yes the International Space Station as it flies on by. Can you "Spot The Station"?

Well tonight is your night as the Space Station is expected to pass right over Maryland. This evening the station will fly by for 6 mins starting at 9:38pm moving southwest to northeast in the sky. Viewing conditions look great with scattered high clouds across the area.

Besides the fly by you will have the opportunity to see the fading "Buck Moon, Jupiter, and Saturn in the southern sky 60 minutes after sunset. For now let's enjoy the front to our south and limited energy for storms for a "SkyWatchers Delight" type of evening. Happy hunting, and remember to wave at those astronauts as they speed on by!!!
