International Space Station flys over the South East at 6pm

The International Space Station will be passing over the South Coast tonight — bang on 6pm (April 22nd, 2020)

The station will be passing from the north-west to the south-east and will be visible for around seven minutes. Appearing as a bright dot the International Space Station solar panels are aligned to reflect the sun making it easier to see.

There are three new astronauts up there since the last time it passed over: Chris Cassidy, Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner. They traded with another crew who arrived back to a world of coronavirus and lockdowns For an added experience why not visit the ISS webcam and see yourself waving up at it https://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/iss_ustream.html
