The International Space Station of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration of the United States will be visible to the Sri Lankans from the naked eye at around 6:25 pm (22).
 
The NASA said it will be visible for around 5 minutes.
 
It is the largest man-made object in orbit around our planet, but the International Space Station was dwarfed by the sun as it was captured passing in front of its surface.
 
The ISS is roughly 109 metres by 73 metres and takes 90 minutes to orbit the Earth.
 
The orbiting base has been the home of 222 people from 18 countries, who have used its unique conditions to conduct scientific research.
 
It's currently home to a crew of six, made up of Jack Fischer, Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin, Peggy Whitson, Paolo Nespoli, Randy Bresnik and Sergey Ryazanskiy.
 
The crew is part of the 52nd expedition to the International Space Station.
