Space Cadets! The forecast is promising tonight as the International Space Station makes a very bright evening pass more than 220 miles over Central Maryland. Look for it to appear over the southwest horizon at 9:12 p.m. EDT as it rises over northern Alabama. It will look like a moving star. If you see blinking, or colored lights, it's an airplane. Keep looking. The ISS will pass between Mars and the twin stars of Gemini, rising high in the northwest by 9:15 p.m. before passing the Big Dipper and disappearing in the northeast at 9:19 p.m.
