Prime viewing of Int'l Space Station in S. Fla. Thursday evening


PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Thursday evening is a prime viewing night to see the International Space Station soar high above South Florida.

If you're in Miami-Dade, Broward or Monroe County, you can see the ISS flying overhead beginning at 7:08 p.m.

Look towards the West-Southwest section of the sky as the ISS travels to the East-Southeast.

The station is expected to be ovehead for a good 5 minutes.

The ISS often makes appearances in the night sky over South Florida, but the position and length of appearance on Thursday is rare.

If you miss the show on Thursday, you can catch the ISS on Saturday night as it appears at 7:00 p.m. for a full 6 minutes.
