Watch the International Space Station pass overhead on Saturday evening.


The International Space Station orbits 400 kilometres above Earth.

It is the third brightest object in the sky and easy to spot if you know when to look up.

Visible to the naked eye, it looks like a fast-moving plane only much higher and travelling thousands of miles an hour faster!
