From Syracuse to the Stars

The ISS is one of the most visible man-made objects in the sky. Close up, it looks like a large spacecraft where some astronauts live and work. According to NASA, the space station is as big as a five-bedroom house! 

The timing of visibility of the ISS and a large area of high pressure over the Northeast will align Tuesday morning. This will provide us with great viewing conditions.
