The International Space Station (ISS) will glide across ​Lancashire night skies tonight.

It will approach from ​the south west at 9.30pm ​and from​ the west at 11.07pm​.​

The ISS is the largest space station ever built and it can be ​seen with the naked eye at certain times as it orbits Earth at 17,500mph at an altitude of roughly 200 miles.

Spotting the station is easy and you don’t need any special equipment​.
