People should get the chance to see the International Space Station (ISS) as it passes over the UK tonight (Wednesday).

With clear skies forecast, conditions are likely to be perfect for seeing the ISS in orbit around the Earth.

The Met Office said it should be visible from around 5.22pm for around five minutes.

A spokesman said: “The space station will be passing over and it might look like Santa’s sleigh.”
