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.
