JERSEY CITY - The International Space Station was visible to many in the New Jersey sky Tuesday night.

The outer-space laboratory was almost directly overhead just after sundown.

The space station orbits the Earth every 93 minutes.

Dr. Harold Clark, from the Liberty Science Center, said anyone interested in seeing the ISS could go outside at 9:02 p.m. and look to the southwest for a steady white light.

"It won't be a blinking light like an airplane and its not going to flicker like a star, it'll be a solid white light," Clark says. "And it will track over the next six minutes from the southwest to the northeast."

The next time the ISS comes around it will be much closer to the horizon and harder to see.
