Seeing the International Space Station
This might interest a few people on here, its an explanation of how you can see the ISS cross the skies over the next week or so, basically the station orbits the Earth every 75 minutes or so and at certain times we can see it crossing the skies of the UK and other Countries of course. It is visible at the time the ISS is in the vicinity of crossing the UK and when the solar panels catch the light of the Sun. At those times it appears as a bright white light about as bright as a planet like Jupiter.
So how to see it.....
To see it go outside at one of the times mentioned below, face South, look up and a bright white light will cross the sky from West to East. It will a steady white light about as bright as the planet Jupiter, the angle you look up will vary on how far South you are, in the South of the UK it tends to be almost overhead, In Scotland it will be much lower.
