LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Heads up this evening — literally! Mars will be making its closest approach to Earth tonight, watch for it rising in the eastern sky. It won't be this close to Earth for another 15 years. For more information, check out EarthSky.org.
Also, the International Space Station will be making a couple of flyovers the next couple of evenings. Our sky will be clear, so visibility will be great!
You can look to the northwest this evening at 8:37 p.m. to spot the Space Station, which will be crossing our sky for about three minutes.
Tomorrow, look in the same direction at 7:48 p.m. The Space Station will be flying over for a longer duration — six minutes!
Enjoy spacing out!
