Borderstan residents will have a chance to spot the International Space Station tonight! The space station will appear as the third brightest object in the sky, after the sun and moon. It will look like a fast-moving plane in the sky.

Tonight at 7 pm head outside in the Dupont-Logan-U Street area to view the space station. It will appear for three minutes at 7 pm sharp. Here are the coordinates you’ll need to spot it: Max Height: 42 degrees, Appears: SSW, Disappears: SE.

People live and work aboard the International Space Station as it travels through the atmosphere at more than 200 miles above the earth. Check out more information on the Space Station’s mission here.

Ciano is a lawyer who thinks the best part about DC is that it’s a constant reminder that “living local” means keeping in mind that you too came from someplace else. Happy to call U Street home, Ciano can be found on weekends wandering the galleries, restaurants, and furniture stores along the 14th and U corridors. She will be reporting on as many concerts as her checkbook can handle, arts and happy hours, exploring local politics, the real estate scene, and the area’s many charter schools.

    That would have been fun to watch. Except that the Borderstan newsletter containing the alert was mailed out at 7:02:44 PM … 16 seconds before the space station would have disappeared from view. I don’t move that fast. 😉
