Will you spot the International Space Station above Evesham tonight?

Evesham Editorial 28th Jul, 2017   0

KEEN-eyed Evesham residents  may spot something unusual in the skies over the coming days as the International Space Station becomes visible from the town.

No equipment is needed to see the Space Station – just a clear night and good pair of eyes at the right time.

The space station looks like an aeroplane or a very bright star moving across the sky, although it doesn’t have flashing lights or change direction.

It will also be moving considerably faster than a typical plane, which generally fly at around 600 miles per hour, while the space station flies at 17,500 miles per hour)




The Space Station should be visible for around six minutes tonight (Friday) at around 10.49pm.

It should also be visible at around 9.57pm tomorrow (Saturday), and 10.41pm on Sunday night.
