WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – The International Space Station (ISS) can be easily spotted with the naked eye—if you time it just right.

According to astroviewer.net , the best time to observe the ISS is when it is night time in your location but sunny where the Space Station is. Such times tend to occur in the morning before sunrise or in the evening after sunset.

As the ISS passes over Westchester County the next few days, the following times will provide the best chance to see it (in order of most visible to least visible):

  • Thursday, April 25 from 8:03 p.m. to 8:10 p.m. (Northwest to Northeast)
