Good International Space Station Sighting Opportunity on July 15
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- Central Florida will have a good opportunity to see the International Space Station pass overhead on Thursday, July 15, at about 9:27 p.m. EDT, weather permitting.
The station with its six-person Expedition 24 crew, including NASA astronauts Tracy Caldwell Dyson, Shannon Walker and Doug Wheelock, is about 225 miles above Earth.
The station will approach from the north/northwest and for about two minutes will be two-thirds of the way up in the sky as it moves to the east/southeast.
