What: ISS Flyover
When: Tuesday, November 10, 2020 - 6:15am
Where: Overhead

For those of you awake, the International Space Station (ISS) will have a visible flyover for 6 minutes over the Knoxville area begining at 6:16am. Clear skies will make it an opportunistic viewing.

Here are a few interesting facts about the Space Station:

The space station orbits Earth about every 90 minutes, so that means in a 24 hour day, the space station orbits approximately 16 times. It's travelling at 17,000 miles an hour, so keep that in mind when you watch it pass overhead.

Thank you! I realize that for

Thank you! I realize that for many it's just a speck of light travelling across the sky, but what it took to get that speck of light there still fascinates me. And to think 6 people call it home for months at a time. Watching it silently pass overhead from horizon to horizon in six short minutes at 250 miles up and knowing that it takes a plane flying at 40,000 feet probably 30 minutes or more to go from horizon to horizon It makes me curious about how a flat earther would explain this?
