Attention, space cadets! If skies stay clear enough, Marylanders can step outside this evening and watch the $100 billion-plus International Space Station as it flies up the East Coast. Look for a very bright, star-like object rising above the southwestern horizon at 9:48 p.m. The ISS will climb about halfway up the southeastern sky by 9:51. It will be nearly as bright as Jupiter, visible just below it. Zipping away at 17,500 mph, the station will fade to black, low in the northeast, at 9:53.
