Watch for the International Space Station at 10:54 p.m. tonight.

By Peninsula Daily News staff

DID YOU SEE IT? And, no, that object in the sky wasn't a fast-moving jet.

The International Space Station zoooooomed over the North Olympic Peninsula (and most Puget Sound locations, from Seattle north) for four minutes tonight starting at 9:18 p.m.

It was a bright speck of light that moved quickly across the sky, from the northwest to east-northeast.

And it will make another pass tonight — at 10:54 p.m., visible for 3 minutes (52 degrees high in the sky) as it moves from west-northwest to east-northeast.

Because this operation runs so smoothly, you almost never hear about the ISS in the news. READ MORE: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-sten-odenwald/usrussian-relations-and-t_b_5054431.html
