ISS Viewing Times (April 2011)

Credit: David Warrington

The International Space Station is again visible over Essex skies at reasonable times over the next week or two.

The ISS is a  fairly bright object and is quite easy to spot, as long as you know when and where to look. It appears as a briskly moving bright point object. It’s also quite a good target for long exposure photography.

You can find the viewing times of ISS flybys over Essex here (or you can click the link in the right-hand menu).
