The International Space Station will be visible tonight for the last time until July

On Monday night the ISS will be visible for the final time over the UK until July

The ISS makes around 16 trips around Earth every single day at a height of around 400km.

The space station will be visible at 10:12pm from a South Westerly direction, just look out for a fast bright travelling object.

Heading away from light pollution to areas such as the countryside provides the best chance of spotting the station.

NASA advised: “The space station looks like an airplane or a very bright star moving across the sky, except it doesn’t have flashing lights or change direction.

“It will also be moving considerably faster than a typical airplane (airplanes generally fly at about 600 miles per hour; the space station flies at 17,500 miles per hour).”
