Space Cadets! Eschew sunshine. Embrace the night. Watch the International Space Station make a fine appearance Tuesday evening. Look for a steady, Jupiter-bright object rising above the northwest horizon at exactly 8 p.m. It will climb high overhead by 8:03 p.m., soaring over Central Virginia. See it glide past bright Altair, southernmost star of the Summer Triangle, then vanish into Earth's shadow, in the south, at 8:04 p.m.
