Space station sightings

This page is a  suggestion from Princethorpe College, Rugby.

The following dates / times are for sighting the International Space Station (ISS). Just look for an incredibly bright moving star-like object. The times are generalised, it depends upon what part of southern England you are in. So go outside at least 5 minutes before the suggested times. We only include sightings where the Station is high in the sky. Do wave as the astronauts pass by.
