People in New Jersey will have the opportunity to see the International Space Station tonight as it flies through space high above New Jersey.
According to NASA, the space station will be visible to the naked eye for about seven minutes as it travels across the night sky over the Southeast and East Coast of the United States.
In Lakewood and surrounding areas, the International Space Station will be the second-brightest object in the sky, other than the moon, and will appear similar to a fast-moving plane or bright star, but at a much higher altitude and moving at 17,500 miles an hour. It also will not have any flashing lights and will not change direction.
To watch, gaze upwards beginning at 9:54 PM. The ISS should appear at 10-degrees above the southwestern sky and then disappear at 10-degrees above the northeastern sky.
If you missed the first sighting, you can still catch a glimpse of the ISS as it circles above Earth at 11:32 PM. It will be visible for 5 minutes.
