Tuesday Night Skyshow

BALTIMORE — 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 3 mins starting at 9:54pm moving northwest to east southeast in the sky. Viewing conditions look great with high clouds across the area.

Besides the fly by you will have the opportunity to see the young moon, Mercury, and Mars in the western sky 60 minutes after sunset. For now let's enjoy the stalled 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!!!
