Space Station sightings from Winnipeg

We’re finally moving into a period when the ISS can be seen from Manitoba in the early evening. For the next couple of weeks, the space station can be seen with the unaided eye, moving slowly across the sky at specific times. See this link for times for Winnipeg; for those in rural Manitoba, this link will let you enter your own location.

Don’t mistake that bright object low in the west after sunset for the space station – it’s not. That’s the planet Venus, which is visible every night after sunset this month. Venus sets slowly like the sun does, whereas the space station zips across the entire sky in about five minutes.
