Look Up, Carolinas!

The International Space Station will be visible across the Carolinas for 3 minutes this evening

Look Up, Carolinas! The International Space Station will make another pass over the Carolinas this evening at 6:53 PM Wednesday, January 20th, 2021. It will be visible for about 3 minutes so be sure to be on time.

  • It will appear in the WNW sky and disappear in the NNE sky. Do note, the farther you can get from lights, the better.
  • Weather conditions over the Queen City: We will see increasing clouds this evening, but during the time of the pass skies should be partly cloudy.

Fun Fact from Monday: The ISS is as big as a football field but will look like a pin of light, a star that does not blink moving very steadily across the night sky.

Fun Fact from Tuesday: The space station has been continuously occupied since November 2000.

Fun Face from Wednesday: A spacecraft can arrive at the space station as soon as four hours after launching from Earth.
