CLEVELAND - If you miss it the first time, you get a second chance to see it.
I'm talking about the International Space Station (ISS). It is scheduled to make not one, but two, passes over northern Ohio Thursday night. The first pass begins just after 9 p.m.
Look for a fast-moving, extremely bright object in the sky. It will look like the brightest star. It will not be blinking like a jet airplane would.
9:02 p.m. - ISS rising out of the west/southwest sky:
9:05 p.m. - above you at 66 degrees high overhead (right next to Orion Constellation).
9:08 p.m. - ISS disappears in the Northeast sky.
The second pass occurs just 90 minutes later:
10:39 p.m. - ISS rising out of the West/Northwest sky.
10:42 p.m. - ISS then fades as it reaches 18 degrees in the North/Northwest (just under Venus).
Because the space station can change it's orbit without notice, times are approximate.
Enjoy the show.

Thanksgiving weather varies wildly here in northern Ohio.
