Thursday brings a rare treat for night sky watchers in South Louisiana. The Internation Space Station, or ISS, will fly overhead an hour after sunset.

In Baton Rouge, from 9:11 p.m. to 9:15 p.m., a four minute window, the ISS will appear in the low, western horizon and fade away into the southern sky. 

NASA says the ISS is "the third brightest object in the sky" and can easily be seen with the naked eye.
