Every so often, you can see the ISS in your night sky. To us on Earth, it looks like a bright star moving quickly above the horizon. So how do you know when you can see the ISS pass overhead?
NASA has a great tool to help – the Spot the Station program lets you sign up to receive alerts to let you know when the ISS will be visible from your location – anywhere in the world.You can get also sign up for alerts via email or text message. Typically, alerts are sent out a few times each month when the station’s orbit is near your location. Visit the Spot the Station website here to sign up, and view a list of upcoming sighting opportunities.
