For the next three days, the International Space Station will be in almost constant sunlight. This means sky watchers in Europe and North America can see the spaceship gliding overhead as many as four times each night. Folks in Eastern North Carolina should look to the south and southwest on Wednesday evening to see the satellite at around 9:07 pm. It would be nice if you could get a good view in that direction away from trees. Of course, we need the skies to remain clear and skies should be clearing during the evening. If that fails you will be able to check out some other times for viewing. The times include early Thursday morning at 5:06 am viewing WNW, Thursday evening at 9:29 pm looking WSW and Friday morning at 3:53 am looking NNW. Each time the view should last about two minutes.
update: Justin Woolverton in Greenville sent us some pictures of the International Space Station going over on 5/21/08
