Weather permitting; the ISS should be visible tonight

If the weather is clear, people living in Belgium should get a chance to see the International Space Station ISS tonight. The news that we might catch a glimpse of the ISS come from the American Space Agency NASA. The space station should become visible in the west from 23:56 and will remain so for around 6 minutes.

The space station should become visible in the west from 23:56 and will remain so for around 6 minutes. Will pass over us west to east at a maximum angle of 87°.

The times stated above are for Brussels, but will only vary slightly at other locations in Belgium. The ISS will be the brightest object in the night sky. It can be distinguished from an aircraft as it doesn’t have any flashing lights.

If we are very lucky, we might even be able to see the ISS’s giant rotating solar panels.

As a member of the Europe Space Agency, Belgium plays a role in research projects on the space station.
