SALT LAKE CITY— The International Space Station will be passing right over Salt Lake City this evening and should be visible to the naked eye if the clouds and inversion cooperate.

According to Nasa, the Space Station will be visible about 6:47 p.m. this evening.

The International Space Station was launched Dec. 4, 1998. Since then, countless astronauts have spent time on the Space Station. The International Space Station was a result of five different space agencies, representing 15 different countries. It sits in orbit about 250 miles above the earth.

Currently, the Space Station is involved in the Expedition 66 mission with a crew of seven people. The mission was started in October 2021 and ends March 2022. According to Nasa, this expedition is focused on biology, earth science, human research, and providing the foundation for continuing human spaceflight beyond low-Earth orbit to the Moon and Mars.
