Observation of the International Space Station
The International Space Station (ISS) can easily be spotted with the naked eye. Because of its size (110m x 100m x 30m), it reflects a large amount of sunlight.
The best time to observe the ISS is when it is nighttime at your location, and the Space Station is sunlit. Often, such a viewing situation occurs in the morning before sunrise, or in the evening after sunset.
You find a list of the next sighting opportunities for your location below. The green bars indicate the brightness of the ISS on its pass.
The list contains all visible passes of the ISS during the next ten days. Please select a pass to get more details.
