INDIANAPOLIS -- Look up in the sky this week and, while you're likely to see a bird or a plane, you might be lucky enough to spot the International Space Station.

The ISS travels at more than 17,000 mph. Amazingly, we can still see the bright light of the ISS from the ground. That is, if you know where to look. Fortunately, NASA has done that work for us. What's unique about this time is how many chances in a row you have to see the ISS fly over central Indiana. 

Here's what you need to know, courtesy of NASA: (Hopefully you're a morning person.)
