The International Space Station (ISS) orbits the Earth, and it's visible when it flies over Asheville-- if you know where and when to look.

At 8:45 p.m. on Easter Sunday, the ISS will fly over Asheville and be visible as it crosses overhead for four minutes. A great way to remind yourself to look for it is to set an alarm on your cell phone for just a few minutes before the ISS pass.

If skies are clear, look west at 8:45 p.m., and look for the ISS to become visible over the horizon. It will look like a bright, fast-moving star, and will travel overhead and move out of sight into the horizon to the SSE.

Check here to see if the skies in Asheville will be clear.

The ISS travels at about 17,150 mph. You can view how many people are aboard it here.

You can track where the ISS is here. There's even a livecam on the ISS, and you can see what the international astronauts are seeing here.

See you outside tonight!
