International Space Station
Hundreds of hours of space walks have been taken by astronauts leaving the safe confines of the international Space Station (ISS).
tinyThe International Space Station can be seen passing over the South. Every week or so, we'll have the precise times when you'll be able to see it crossing the sky.

There are other satellites, like the Hubble telescope, or the Space Shuttle which might also be visible.

The ISS weighs 149,686 kg (330,000 lbs.) (But in space it weighs nothing!)

If the weather conditions are right, you can see satellites and spacecraft such as the International Space Station clearly from the ground with the naked eye.

Most satellite sightings follow a west-to-east path and the spacecraft appear over the western horizon and disappear in the east in a matter of a few minutes.


On this page we list the dates and times for the best possible sightings for the week ahead.
These times may alter slightly - keep coming back and checking this page.

If you spot anything other than the International Space Station you could be dealing with a UFO! In which case check out our UFO section.

If the altitude is 0 the ISS is on the absolute horizon, if it's 90 then the ISS is directly overhead.

No visible passes between 8th April and 18th April 2005.
