The International Space Station, carrying astronaut Reid Wiseman of Cockeysville, flew over Baltimore Wednesday, and will do so again later this week.

It was visible Wednesday from about 7:45 p.m. to 7:51 p.m. The ISS moved across the sky from southwest to northeast, looking brighter than a star but farther away than a plane.

It will appear dimmer in a flyover Friday, low across the northwestern sky from 7:44 p.m. to 7:49 p.m.
