KNOXVILLE (WATE) – You can see the International Space Station fly overhead from different places around the world. It’s usually the third brightest object in the sky and easy to spot if you know where to look.

Just looking at it with the naked eye, it looks like a fast moving plane only moving much faster. If you want to figure out where it will be in relation to where you live, NASA has a special section on its website to do just that.

First, select your country, in our case the United States. Next we pick the state or region. In this case it Tennessee, and finally the city of Knoxville. You can pick almost any city. Now hit the GO button and sighting locations for the ISS will come up. It will give you the place, time and elevation where you might get to see ISS.

On Wednesday, June 15 9:40 p.m., for instance, it shows the elevation and gives you the best chance to see it.
