International Space Station Viewing

Doc: I’m interested in seeing the International Space Station fly overhead. Is there a website or something where I can find out if I can see it? Thanks in advance. - Anonymous

Anon: Yes, NASA has a webpage that allows you to find out if and when you can see the International Space Station (ISS), just click here. Enter your location information and hit “Next,” and you’ll see a chart with dates, times, degrees above the horizon, and direction. Hint: The times are exact, so if the chart shows that you’ll be able to see it at 8:12 p.m., that’s according to the Atomic Clock, so make sure you’re out looking a few minutes ahead of time. The ISS travels about 17,100 mph (27,600 km/h), so you can’t mess around. Look for a quickly moving object that looks like a small star or planet, or airplane.

For more information about the ISS, click here. NASA also has a website: here.
