Do you like to look at the stars, the moon and the clouds? If you do, look up tonight, Tuesday, November 1st around 7:22pm. The International Space Station (ISS) will be visible in the heavenly canopy stretching across the Twin Tiers. From time to time, the orbital path of the ISS brings it into the nighttime sky and allows us to view the almost 240 foot long tip-to-tip, man-made space vehicle. It will be in the West-northwestern sky around 57 degrees above the horizon. If you would like to learn a bit more about this, visit this NASA website and enter the state you are located in, then choose the town or city closest to you. It will list any sighting possible over the next couple of days. But, keep in mind, cloud cover will hold the final say as to whether you will be able to view the satellites or space vehicles listed! I do expect tonight to be mainly clear so viewing conditions should be good.
