UK ISS Pass details for December 2015

ISS Pass Times Leading Uo To Christmas Eve
The International Space Station (ISS) is back over UK skies with some great evening passes during December 2015 with great passes over the Christmas period.
The ISS is the largest Space Station/ laboratory ever built, it can be spotted with the naked eye at certain times as it orbits Earth at 17500mph at an altitude of roughly 200 miles.
Spotting the station is very easy and you don’t need any special equipment. You only need your eyes!
Just for fun as the ISS passes over, tell your Children it’s Santa on a practice run or whatever you think will fire their imaginations. A little bit of magic goes a long way with young children, maybe inspiring them in the future. You never know Santa (The ISS passing over) could encourage a future Einstein, but most of all it’s fun.
Check out the Beginners Guide to Seeing the ISS to learn how easy it is to spot sailing over and the Beginners Guide to Photographing the International Space Station (ISS)
You can also see this great guide on how to watch and photograph the ISS.
