Space Cadets! If you missed Tuesday's flyover by the International Space Station, you'll get another shot tonight as the enormous contraption passes overhead again on nearly the same trajectory. A very bright ISS and its crew of three will rise in the northwest at 8:48 p.m. as they pass over Lake Michigan. They'll climb very high overhead (243 miles above Baltimore), passing the bright star Arcturus at 8:51 p.m. Then they'll head southeast off the Carolina capes, skirting brilliant Jupiter and disappearing at 8:53 p.m.
