International Space Station (ISS) comes into sight over Cyprus

Look up into the dark over the next few days and you may see a gleaming object moving northwards across the firmament.

International Space Station (ISS) comes into sight over Cyprus

By Kerem Hasan

This is no star or other celestial body, but the International Space Station (ISS), which has become the brightest object in the sky, after the moon.

It became visible from Cyprus on  Monday March 26, and may be watched for a few minutes every night until April 9.

The next chance to glimpse it will be on Thursday at 9.04pm, when it will be visible for one minute, on 10° above NNW (north north-west).

Space enthusiasts can also see the ISS on Friday, for about a minute at 9.46pm; next Saturday, April 7, for two minutes at 8.43pm, and on April 8 at 8.03pm for three minutes at 10° above north.

It will again be visible on April 8 at 9.38pm, this time at 16° above north-west for one minute, then the last sighting will be on Monday, April 9 at 8.46pm, at 13° above NNW for a period of two minutes.
