Space cadets! If skies clear up, we'll have a great opportunity tonight to watch the International Space Station as it sweeps up the East Coast from Georgia to Nova Scotia. The ISS will be reflecting lots of sunlight as it rises above the southwestern horizon at 6:53 p.m. Look for a very bright, starlike object as it climbs toward the zenith (straight up), passing about 220 miles over Baltimore at 6:56 p.m. From there, it will glide off toward the northeast at 17,500 mph, disappearing at 6:58 p.m.
