ISS Viewing Times (August 2011)

Image: David Warrington

The International Space Station is again visible over Essex skies in the evenings over the next couple of weeks.

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 bright point object moving across the sky, usually taking a couple of minutes to pass over. There are again quite a few long passes predicted.

It’s also quite a good target for photography (see left).

You can find the viewing times of ISS flybys over Essex here, or you can click the “ISS Tracking” link in the right-hand menu.
