CRYSTAL clear sky means more than just no rain, with local stargazers able to easily recognize the international space station.
The astronomer of Townsville, Bob Bartlett, said the station passed about three times a month, but it was easier to recognize at certain times.
The clear sky that lingers for the rest of the work week ensures ideal spot conditions.
Mr. Bartlett said that everywhere with a clear view of the sky would work for those who like to catch a glimpse, with a height that is not necessarily needed.
"It goes very fast," he warned.
The station will be visible for about three minutes tonight, while it can be spotted about three minutes on Tuesday night.
Bartlett said just after sunset or before sunrise were the best times to spot the revolving facility, as the sun caught the sails of the space station, making it seem pretty bright.
Mr Bartlett said during a high pass it could shine as bright as Venus.
"It will be caught by the sun before it enters the shadow of the earth," he said.
Office of Meteorology predictor Lachlan Stoney said the light wind and dry conditions would provide "beautiful ideal conditions for sky staring".
"It is really dry, you will not see any cloud at all."
Mr. Bartlett said that those with their eyes up on Tuesday night would be able to see a "bright, fast moving star" around 7:05 PM.
He said it would start in the northwest over Bushland Beach and then disappear in the southeast.
"It will go straight through Australia in a few minutes," Bartlett said.
