BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The International Space Station (ISS) will buzz overhead the next few nights, with some views lasting about six minutes each. 

According to the WAFB Storm Team, the clouds will cooperate each of the next few evenings and you should have a nearly overhead view of the International Space Station.

The International Space Station can easily be spotted with the naked eye. Because of its size it reflects sunlight well.

Thursday's viewing of the International Space Station will happen at 7:37 p.m. until 7:41 p.m. in the Baton Rouge area. The visibility on Thursday will be lower than what it will be Friday night.

The ISS can be seen Friday, March 1 at 6:48 p.m. Depending on which website you reference, it will last anywhere from three minutes to six minutes.
