The International Space Station is a high-flying laboratory and has nine crew members aboard.
Watch the International Space Station [ISS] pass over Irish skies tonight Tuesday 31st March from 8:42pm until 8:50pm.
Look towards the Moon and just below Venus in the sky as NASA’s International Space Station [as big as Croke Park!!] speeds past.
The ISS travels at 27,500km/hr and cost €136 billion to build!!
When it comes into view tonight it will be over the Atlantic Ocean and as it fades into the shadow it will be directly over the Italian Alps. Be sure to give them a wave!
