Space cadets! The forecast tonight is promising for a fine view of the International Space Station, the shuttle Atlantis and a combined crew of 10 as they fly from high over Lake Michigan to the Outer Banks. The new Columbus module and Atlantis should make it brighter than ever. The space station rises like a bright star in the northwest at 6:37 p.m., climbing high in the southwestern sky by 6:40 p.m. It grazes bright star Rigel at Orion's foot and disappears in the southeast at 6:42 p.m.
