If you're out in the evening (or up early) you can catch a glimpse of the International Space Station (ISS) zipping by in the heavens above.
It will look like a fast-moving star, but it's actually a spacecraft moving at 17,200mph at an altitude of 220 miles.
The ISS is about the size of a football field; this plus its large solar array make it quite reflective and so we can see it easily. It can be as bright as the planet Venus at times.
The flyby times listed below should help you find it. They'll be accurate within a few seconds anywhere in Texoma.
