If the clouds part this evening, we should have a fine view of a very bright International Space Station as it zips up the East Coast and crosses the Chesapeake Bay just south of Baltimore. Look to the southwest about 7:55 p.m., and watch for a steady, starlike object climbing past Jupiter at a brisk 17,500 mph. The space station will pass high overhead at 7:58 p.m., flying northeast through the starry Summer Triangle. Then watch it vanish into the Earth's shadow at 7:59 p.m.
