ISS Viewing Times Over Essex (February 2012)
The International Space Station is again visible over Essex skies in the evenings over the next week or two.
The ISS is a noticeably bright object and is easy to spot, as long as you know when and where to look. It appears as a bright point object moving across the sky, usually taking a couple of minutes to move across the sky. The space station isn’t emitting light – you are seeing it reflect sunlight from orbit as it passes over over your location.
