Space buffs will want to have their eyes on the skies tonight.

The International Space Station is set to pass over Australia’s East Coast on Wednesday night, followed closely by China’s new station.

If you can find a clear patch of sky you’ll be in prime position to catch both on their journeys.

The International Space Station is set to be visible in Canberra skies for about 7 minutes from 5:38pm

It’ll be shortly followed by China’s new Tiangong Space Station from 6:30pm but it’ll be much quicker, only visible for about 3 minutes and it’ll much fainter than its international cousin.
