International Space Station to fly over Kampala

Have you seen the the International Space Station before? Well, we have seen them in movies. Here is the real thing soon here.

On Saturday morning just before sunrise, at exactly 06:26 AM the International Space Station will fly directly over Kampala. The space station looks like a fast-moving plane in the sky, but it will be seen as a steady – not blinking – brilliant white pinpoint of light. You will not need anything except your eyes to see it, as it is the third brightest object in the sky. Only the Sun and Moon are brighter.

According to US Embassy in Kampala, here’s the flight path Saturday morning.
At 06:25 watch for it in the low Southwest sky.
At 06:29 it will be directly overhead, 400 km above the Earth.
At 06:32 it will disappear in the low Northeast sky.
