International Space Station Flies Over Texarkana Sky Tonight
Okay, my Sci-fi Space Geekness is in full swing. The International Space Station will be flying over Texarkana over the next few nights and we will be able to see it with the naked eye.
A couple of years ago my husband and I were at the lake and had the chance to spot it and it was awesome. I can't wait to do this again. Below is a list of dates, times and about where to look for it in the sky.
Here's How to Find it in The Sky
Tonight Wednesday, July 14 you will be able to see it in the Texarkana sky at 9:14 in the South Western Sky about 10 degrees above the horizon with the maximum height at 70 degrees. So think of the horizon at 0 degrees and straight up is 90 degrees. If you miss it tonight there are still plenty of chances to see it over the next few days although it will be closer to the horizon.
I know last time once I saw it I couldn't help but wave. And yes I think they could see me, well maybe not but it was still super cool!. According to NASA's Spot the Station website below are the times to see the Space Station now through Monday July 26
Here's the Schedule for the Next Few Nights
