The International Space Station is the third brightest object in the sky and is easy to spot if you know when to keep your eyes peeled.
According to the NASA website, it has been possible to spot the International Space Station over Norfolk since December 14.
On December 24, the station will be visible at 6.15am from Norfolk for a total of four minutes. NASA estimates the station will appear 38 degrees above the horizon.
At 7.03am on Christmas Day, the space station will be visible for five minutes at 29 degrees above the horizon.
