Every year you can see Santa’s sleigh but how do you know where to look?  According to Nasa “It is the third brightest object in the sky and easy to spot if you know when to look up, it looks like a fast-moving plane but only much higher and travelling thousands of miles an hour faster!”

Nasa says you can tell its Santa’s sleigh (the Space Station) because it will not change direction and will not have flashing lights. 

You won’t be able to see it on Christmas Eve this year but if you go to the Nasa website, they have published the day and times you can see it from Saturday 18th December and which direction you should be looking. 

You can also download the ISS tracking app on the App Store or Google Play Store.
