According to NASA, beginning at 5:09PM today the last visible two-minute to visibly see the International Space Station (ISS) occurs. Look to the north as it travels to the south towards the water if you’re going to want to see it! The event began occurring on Monday for six minutes, was visible for two minutes on Tuesday around 6PM and will be visible for the last time in just a moment.
The PR says for “Those wanting a peak at the manned station should look for a bright looking star moving quickly across the night sky.”
The NASA website states that it will be at a maximum elevation of 37 degrees, the approach will be at 37 degrees above SSW (south southwest) and depart 12 degrees above SSE (south southeast). Our best suggestion to see it is somewhere on the Eastern Shore on the water like Fairhope Pier or anywhere on the coastline of the Gulf of Mexico to see it depart.
