If you’re like me and forgot to go outside last night to see the International Space Station go by, don’t fret. There is an even better opportunity to see it tonight.
Coachella Valley residents have a 6-minute window Tuesday to see the space station streak across the night sky.
The space station will first appear from the south-southwest at 6:59 p.m. and travel to northeast hitting a maximum height of 59 degrees in the sky.
Traveling thousands of miles above us, ISS and its on-board astronauts will appear to the naked eye as a bright dot moving quickly. Not to be confused with lower-flying airplanes, the has no visible flashing lights.
I have alarm set this time to remind me to go outside and look up.
