IF YOU SPOT a very bright object in the sky tonight, it’s most likely the International Space Station (or you should get on to Astronomy Ireland about your UFO sighting…)
The ISS will be visible until 22 April in the Irish skies, passing over the country every evening for a few minutes.

Astronomy Ireland say it’s so bright that it can’t be missed, and you don’t need any specialist binoculars to spot it.
The ISS is the largest artificial body in orbit in space, and the most expensive to boot. It has six astronauts on board at the moment.
