Tour the heavens (again) tonight with the International Space Station ! Ten crew members aboard the ISS and shuttle Discovery will fly from high over Chicago, southeast to the Outer Banks. If skies are clear, watch them rise like a bright star in the northwest at 9:30 p.m., passing Pollux and Castor (the Twins of Gemini), then just above Mars. Around 9:33 they will thread among Saturn, Regulus and the crescent moon before zipping off toward the south at 17,500 mph, disappearing at 9:35 p.m.
