We often see what the International Space Station (ISS) sees from space. The crew can observe weather patters, oceanographic changes and messages to space. But what happens when you want to find the Space Station?
NASA writes the ISS is the third brightest object in the sky, and easy to spot. Using their sighting location tool you can find out where the ISS will be within a 80 kilometre radius.
Choose your country and thereafter your city, and the tracker will give you the seven dates and locations. These indicate when next the International Space Station will be in the sky above you.
