International Space Station Shines Brightly in Night Skies

Not even clouds could obscure the International Space Station as it passed directly over Huntsville, Ala. on the evening of June 13 at 9:15 p.m. CDT. Shining as bright as the planet Venus, the space station took nearly four minutes to traverse the sky before disappearing in the murk to the Northeast. Its passage was watched by the all sky meteor camera at Marshall Space Flight Center, which took this composite image.

  1. There is an object in the southern N.J. sky visible from 9pm to midnight EST. It blinks red and off white lights and is visible to the naked eye. It travels slowly every evening from east to west. The space station travels too quickly to be this object does can anyone tell me what I’m lookin at?
