Where Can You See the Space Station?
This week we have a fun opportunity to catch the International Space Station as it orbits earth. While the space station passes frequently, it can only be seen overhead at certain times of the year–when the space station reflects light as it travels through the night sky around dawn or dusk.
This can be a great activity to do with your kids who love space or a great introduction for those that don’t know a lot about it yet. NASA has a tool to help you figured out exactly where you can spot the space station in your area. You can use the tool for your specific city or you can check out these images I’ve screen shot for a few major cities in our area.
What is the International Space Station?
The International Space Station is a large spacecraft that orbits the earth approximately 220 miles in the air. It was built by many Nations and was put together by astronauts in space. It’s used to study what it’s like to live and work in space.
