International Space Station flyovers

International Space Station after undocking of STS 132

The International Space Station is constantly flying over us, but when is the best time to see it? 

Many factors need to be considered when trying to spot the ISS, cloud cover being the main problem. Usually we can only see it at night, as it's simply a fast-moving white light you're looking for. And of course it has to be within our range.

This is a handy gadget to help you work out when and where it will appear. Happy Hunting!
