Greetings ISS family. I found a video of an ISS flyover that may give some an idea of what the spacestation looks like as it passes overhead. Although raw footage, it may help you in spotting the station.

ISS will appear as a non-blinking, bright light in the night sky. Timing is accurate - you know NASA!

Monday, Aug. 24th
Time: 7:34pm
A 4 minute run @55 degrees over the horizon (high in the sky);
Arriving from the NNW and Departing to the ESE (NNW to ESE).

Hi Lily. You're so welcome. ISS passed over the islands tonight too, but I didn't post the sighting. I regret it now, because she would have been visible at 26 degrees for 5 minutes. Thank you and all our ISS friends for a continued interest in the ISS Consortium and space program. Happy New Year from ISS to you all!
