Space station flyover Columbia

     One of the fun objects to see in our night sky is the Space Station pictured above.  It appears as a large round circle in the sky moving across the sky.  Depending on the angle of the Station it can even appear as a line moving across the sky.   Below is a picture of what it looks like.  It will be the brightest object in the sky (except the Moon) and moving across the sky.

 Tonight (Wednesday March 30th) it will appear at 8:55 pm starting in the Southwest sky and moving higher in the sky to the East North East sky. If you have a telescope, a pair of binoculars or a telephoto lens you can see more of the outline of the Station.   Here are the sightings for Columbia.
