The International Space Station (ISS) will glide across Derbyshire’s night skies on the following days and times...

Monday, August 17: approaches from W at 9.16pm

The ISS is the largest space station ever built and it can be spotted 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 very easy and you don’t need any special equipment – you just need your eyes!
