(Salt Lake City-AP) -- It's a bird, it's a plane! No, it's the International Space Station.

Utahns will be able to see the space station tonight when it makes its most visible evening pass across the sky over Utah.

It'll rise in the northwest at about six-twenty-three p-m, pass high in the sky about six-twenty-six and set in the southeast about six-twenty-eight.

The space station is bright, and visible with the naked eye, even in lightly polluted areas.

A two person crew has been on board the space station since October 18.

The American commander and Russian flight engineer are expected to be relieved by the next crew in April.
