In a recent development, NASA confirms that the people in Cincinnati can see the International Space Station for 31 minutes during this week. The development is not new at all, as the people in this area often see the International Space Station (ISS) for a limited period. Sometimes the visibility time of the space station, even lesser than a minute, revealed researcher. The same is not the case this time. The American Space Agency’s tracker conformed the duration to be as long as 31 minutes during this week.
If you do not know how to witness the magnificent site, here is how you could see the rare event. The horizon of the sky is zero degrees, and over the head is 90 degrees. One can see the ISS at about 10 degrees. To evaluate where is the 10 degree, you need to stretch your fist horizontally near to the soldier height, and the top surface of your feet will indicate the ten degrees location.
