The Weather Page

Dennis Ferguson lives in Easton, and he's spotted the International Space Station several times, thanks to Weather Page alerts. He asks, "Can the ISS be viewed from all 50 states, or does its orbit restrict its viewing area?" Over time, the ISS's orbit will carry it over every spot on the globe between 51.6 degrees north and south latitudes. That includes every U.S. state except Alaska. But even Alaskans, from Anchorage to the panhandle, can occasionally spot the station if they look low in the southern sky.
