Space Station viewing time is here for those in the northeastern United States.

People in northern Ohio and surrounding states were able to see the station, which houses two U.S. astronauts and four other astronauts, on Wednesday and Thursday night, as well as tonight around 7:42 p.m, according to NewsNet5.

If you missed it, you’ve got at least one more chance.

The last viewing opportunities will happen on Saturday, when the station will appear at sunset, at about 6:59 p.m., in the southwest sky, and be visible for about two minutes while traveling directly overhead and then fading in the northeast sky. 

Another opportunity may come at 8:32 p.m. on Saturday. 

“The station will appear from the west and move to the NNE, reaching a max height of 26 degrees,” according to Northwest Ohio. “The pass will take 4 minutes to complete.”
