International Space Station will fly over the ArkLaMiss on August 1
MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Set your alarm now!
The International Space Station will fly over Monroe on August 1 at 9:40 PM and will be visible for four minutes. Look for a bright object moving very quickly across the sky.
The ISS is about 250 miles above the Earth, moving at 17,500 MPH! An international crew of six people live and work while traveling at a speed of five miles per second, orbiting Earth about every 90 minutes. In 24 hours, the space station makes 16 orbits of Earth, traveling through 16 sunrises and sunsets.
Viewing conditions might be difficult as we are expecting scattered storms this evening, but take advantage of breaks in the clouds to try and sneak a peek!
