The International Space Station will make two appearances over Palm Beach County in the next few days.
But the spacecraft’s passes are for early-risers only, appearing both Saturday and Monday before 7 a.m.
On Saturday, the space station will appear in the south at about 10 degrees above the horizon at 6:20 a.m. It should be visible for two minutes before disappearing in the southeast.
On Monday, the station will be visible beginning at 6:10 a.m. for a full six minutes. It will appear in the south-southwest at 11 degrees above the horizon and disappear in the northeast.
EarthSky.org describes the Space Station’s appearance from Earth as looking like a bright star moving quickly above the horizon. If you see lights blinking, it’s probably a plane.
On Thursday, Space X’s Dragon cargo vehicle successfully attached to the space station delivering supplies and experiments.
