International Space Station spotted over Mandeville

If you were looking at the sky just before sunrise this weekend, you may have spotted the International Space Station flying by.

WWL-TV Photojournalist Brian Lukas captured the ISS on camera Saturday morning as it passed above Louisiana while making its orbit around the Earth.

"The space station looks like an airplane or a very bright star moving across the sky," NASA's website says. "except it doesn't have flashing lights or change direction. it will also be moving considerably faster than a typical airplane."

NASA created a tool to help amateur star gazers find the the ISS on their own.
