International Space Station Visible at 9:34pm Tonight

Earlier this morning the International Space Station was visible from sydney with a magnitude of  -2.4.

The ISS is back again tonight at 9:37pm and will be brighter with a magnitude of  -3.1

The space station is about the size of a football field with each of it’s module being the same size as a bus so when it is visible from Earth it is often as bright as Jupiter.

Tonight the ISS will appear in the North East at 9:34pm Sydney time  and will disappear in the south-east at 9:43pm.

The picture below shows where the ISS will be seen at 9:37pm tonight from Sydney while looking North East.
