(February 04, 2014) Tonight on the South Plains, we have another great opportunity to see the International Space Station (ISS) as it passes high overhead. The local forecast is calling for partly cloudy skies, so it should be good viewing weather.

Turn off the tube and take your family out to watch. It only takes a few minutes of your evening, and with this one being a very bright pass, can easily be seen from within town.

Start watching the sky toward the southwest at 7:01 p.m. The Station will look like a very bright planet moving quickly through the sky, climbing fairly high to about 40-45 degrees, then moving back down toward the southeast.  The ISS should be visible for about 5 minutes.
