International Space Station Sighting - WSLS 10 NBC in Roanoke/Lynchburg Va

International Space Station Sighting

Posted:
By Wsls News Staff

While NASA kept a close eye on Space Shuttle Endeavour as it made a rare nighttime landing Wednesday night, others in our area kept an eye to the sky looking for the International Space Station.
If you noticed a bright light in the sky, you probably saw it.
The Space Station was visible over much of our area between 8:00-8-30 p.m.
We caught up with a local astronomer who says that time of night is the best time to see it, because it's still daylight up there and the space station reflects the sunlight.
If you missed getting to see the Space Station, it should be visible again Thursday around 8:24 p.m.
