RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – We have an excellent opportunity to see the International Space Station (you can see it with your naked eye) tonight! Skies will be clear and this flyover is a particularly long one. You will have six minutes to spot the ISS (with the SpaceX Dragon capsule docked with it) as it glides directly overhead from the southwest to the northeast. In Richmond, look to the southwest beginning at 7:35 p.m. EDT and follow the progress of the white dot across the span of our sky to the northeast at 7:41 p.m. EDT.
