Presumably your eyes will be tracking Cubs dingers up into the sky all night anyway, but here’s an extra bit of fun that’ll have you looking up.
.@Cubs @ESPNChiCubs @SarahSpain Tonight, during the Cubs’ Star Wars Night, the International Space Station will fly over Wrigley Field and be visible from 9:17 to 9:23 pm (at maximum angle of 57 degrees, starting 10 degrees above WSW and ending at 10 degrees above NE).

The ‘Star Wars’ *AND* Kyle Schwarber jokes write themselves.
As NASA describes it, here’s what you’re looking for: “It is the third brightest object in the sky and easy to spot if you know when to look up. Visible to the naked eye, it looks like a fast-moving plane only much higher and traveling thousands of miles an hour faster!”
So, then, make sure to look up in the middle innings to see the space station before Kyle Schwarber inadvertently destroys it. (See? Wrote itself.)
