International Space Station visible from San Diego Sunday night



The International Space Station will be seen for three minutes from San Diego County at 21:07 on Sunday, according to NASA.

The orbiting outpost first appears 10 degrees above the western horizon. It will stay at this altitude as it moves southwest. The space station looks like a slow moving, shiny ball bearing. It actually moves around the earth and reaches a speed of more than 27,000 km / h. The station is located more than 220 miles above the planet.

There is currently a crew of six aboard the space station, visible to the naked eye from the ground.

Astronaut Jessica Meir, graduate of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, is scheduled to fly aboard a Soyz rocket to the space station in September.
