Another tool for ISS sighting predictions

Posted by BC on May 2nd, 2008

International Space Station - NASA Spaceweather.com has provided another tool for inhabitants of the USA and Canada to find out when ISS, the Space Shuttle, and a few other satellite objects can be seen passing over your location. The list is limited to the number of objects, so far, but that may change. All you need to do is access the site, select your country, enter your zip code, and run through the list of objects to see when and where one is visible.

A NASA site for sighting predictions has been available to people for several years. The NASA HSF site has ISS, Space Shuttle, and others that involve human space flight listed.

With the International Space Station growing in size and reflective brightness, more and more people are looking skyward to see it. With the prediction lists, more people will know where and when to look.
