Have you spotted the International Space Station floating above Lancashire?

With only light clloud forecast, the ISS is expected to be visible twice tonight.

It will approach from the west at around 22:05 and again at 23:41 only being visible for a few minutes each time.

The ISS is the largest space station ever built and it can be ​seen with the naked eye at certain times as it orbits Earth at 17,500mph at an altitude of roughly 200 miles.

Spotting the station is easy and you don’t need any special equipment​.
