Yes you may actually be able to see the massive International Space Station with your own eyes on your morning commute this week. According to WILX The International Space Station is orbiting around the earth at 4 miles per seconds and is about 250 miles above us but you may be able to get a look at it this week.

Here are few things to look out for if you want to check it out this week. First, just know that it will be moving different from a plane as a plane moves quickly and the space station will have a slow movement across the sky. Next, you can know it is the Space Station because it will have a solid light in the sky as opposed to a plane which has a blinking light.

Finally, according to WILX, here are some estimations when you can see it this week, you will have to be up early to check it out. Also another note, we might have cloudy skies a few times this week so your viewing of the Space Station might be hard on certain days.
