The International Space Station will pass over the Detroit area several times in the coming days. The next chance to see it will happen at 7:05 tomorrow morning when the space station will be visible in the skies of the Motor City for six minutes.

When it begins to appear, the International Space Station will in the southwestern portion of the sky and will disappear to the northeast.


This information is valid for any location that is within a 50-mile radius for the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center, which is pretty much the entire Detroit metropolitan area. For anyone who isn't lucky enough to live in the hometown of Sonny Bono, Kristen Bell, and Dax Sheppard you can find out when and where the International Space Station will be visible to you by visiting Spot The Station on NASA's website.
