International Space Station is set to be visible from Glasgow - if we manage to avoid overcast skies, that is. 

The station orbits the Earth at 17500 mph and is visible to the naked eye. 

It is the third brightest object in the sky due to its solar panels reflecting sunlight from the 357-foot structure.

Usually, it will look like a glowing orb making fairly frequent overhead passes.

Only bright passes of the International Space Station are usually easily spotted from the UK. 

And it is set to be 'incredibly bright' until the end of September, according to Meteor Watch.
