Catch a glimpse of the NASA International Space Station

Posted: Updated:

Richland, WASH - You only have a few minutes to see it and if it's cloudy you'll probably miss it.  We're talking about the NASA International Space Station.

Andy Andresen, who used to work with NASA, showed us an easy way to catch a glimpse of the space station.  Through NASA's website there are schedules of when it is visible from most cities in Washington and Oregon.  You'll have to look quickly because it's moving fast.

"Fourteen minutes after you see it here it's over Greenland and in another 14 minutes it's over Western Europe," explains Andresen.

According to Andresen it will look like a bright star moving through the sky faster than anything else and if you look through a pair of binoculars you can see a flashing red light in the center.
