ATLANTA -- The International Space Station will be visible as it flies over Metro Atlanta this week. 

The station will be seen for just a few minutes each day as it makes it's orbit around the Earth.

NASA has released specific times, and exactly where in the sky it will be.

You will have to pay close attention, as the Space Station is only visible during those exact windows.

"It looks like a little bright light," said astronomer Amy Whitt. "It looks smaller than an airplane, and it moves way quicker than an airplane does. It goes really fast across the sky."
