NASA explained: “The space station looks like an airplane or a very bright star moving across the sky, except it doesn’t have flashing lights or change direction.

“It will also be moving considerably faster than a typical airplane (airplanes generally fly at about 600 miles (965 km) per hour; the space station flies at 17,500 miles (28,000 km) per hour).”

Why is the ISS up there?

The ISS has been in orbit for over 20 years now, and is Earth’s only microgravity laboratory.

According to NASA: “This football field-sized platform hosts a plethora of science and technology experiments that are continuously being conducted by crew members, or are automated.

“Research aboard the orbiting laboratory holds benefits for life back on Earth, as well as for future space exploration.

“The space station serves as a testbed for technologies and allows us to study the impacts of long-term spaceflight to humans, supporting NASA’s mission to push human presence farther into space."
