The International Space Station (ISS) is back over UK skies with some great evening passes during April2016 with UK Astronaut Major Tim Peake.
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!
For times and info
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.
All you need to know is when and where the ISS will be passing over your location. Luckily the United Kingdom (British Isles) is small enough for most of us who live there to see the ISS at the same time. Neighboring countries can see the station pass over at roughly the same time also.
