Is that a space station - or is is Santa?!

The ISS - or Santa?
The ISS - or Santa?

The International Space Station (ISS) will glide across Nottinghamshire’s night skies tonight – or will it be Santa on his sleigh?

You will be able to look up in festive wonderment as the bright object passes Earth at 5.22pm on Christmas Eve.

According to astronomers, it’s the perfect chance for parents to tell their kids it’s Santa flying overhead... but what’s to say it’s not ACTUALLY him?!

The ISS is the largest space station ever built.

It orbits Earth at 17,500mph at an altitude of roughly 200 miles and can be seen with the naked eye.

If you get any photos of video footage of the space station - or Santa! - let us know.
