It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s..

Head’s up, everybody. Specifically, today at 7:47 p.m. and on Monday 10 minutes earlier at 7:37 p.m.
That’s when the International Space Station — with two Americans aboard — will be making passes over Hawaii, rising in the south-southwest at those times and arcing across the sky in each case for about six minutes.

Assuming we have clear skies, the station will appear a little brighter than Jupiter but far less bright than Venus, both in the Western sky. It will be about 249 miles up and traveling at about 17,150 mph. Wow.
