Heads up, space cadets! If skies clear as predicted, Baltimore stargazers should get a brief view of the International Space Station around dinnertime tonight. On this pass, our giant Tinker Toy in the sky will rise above the northwest horizon at 6:31 p.m. as it soars over Michigan and Ohio toward Washington. Tell the kids to watch for a steady, starlike light hustling toward the zenith (straight up). At 6:34 p.m., 220 miles overhead, the ISS and crew will slide into Earth's shadow and vanish.
