The International Space Station (ISS) is gliding across Sussex night skies ​this week​:

Tonight (​Tuesday August 4) it will approach from the south-westat 9.31pm and from the west at 11.07pm.

Tomorrow (Wednesday August 5) it will approach from the west at 10.14pm and from the west at 11.51pm.

The ISS is the largest space station ever built and it can be ​seen with the naked eye at certain times as it orbits Earth at 17,500mph at an altitude of roughly 200 miles.

Spotting the station is easy and you don’t need any special equipment​.
