International Space Station to be seen in Libya’s sky

The International Space Station (ISS), the third brightest object in the sky, is set to be visible to naked eye in the sky of Libya on Sunday night, according to Roaya Astronomy, a Libyan NGO.

Circulating the earth every 90 minutes, the ISS is expected to be seen on Sunday at 20:48 for five minutes in Libyan sky.

The ISS will appear in 6,700 locations worldwide which Mission Control at NASA’s Johnson Space Center determines several times a week.

“All sightings will occur within a few hours before or after sunrise or sunset. This is the optimum viewing period as the sun reflects off the space station and contrasts against the darker sky,” according to Mission Control at Nasa’s Johnson Space Centre
