I don't know if I'm still bored from the year of pandemic (lack of) excitement or if I'm getting old and turning into my dad, but I get really excited lately when the International Space Station flies overhead and we can see it. The ISS zipping over our heads isn't an uncommon occurrence, but the times we can actually see it are limited to a few instances each month. The final one for this month happens Wednesday morning.

When Can I See The International Space Station From My House?

The Spot The Station website can help keep you up to date on all the times you can see the International Space Station from wherever you re in the world. For Idaho, our next good chance is Wednesday June 30th, at 4:48 AM. It will be visible for up to six minutes and high enough in the sky to be seen from almost anywhere.

How Can I See The Next International Space Station Flyby?

Once you know when the International Space Station will be visible, the next step is just knowing where to look. For June 30th, the max visible height for the ISS will be 68 degrees from the horizon traveling basically from the west to the north-east. So, if you don't know your compass directions, from Twin Falls you can look towards California and it will travel towards Montana not quite directly above us.

You'll get another chance to see the ISS on July 1st at 4:03 AM.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
