The International Space Station is once again visible flying over the UK at dusk.
To see the International Space Station, it needs to fly overhead at either dawn or dusk. Any later in the night, and the station is completely in shadow. Any earlier in the day, and the bright daytime sky makes it difficult to spot.
As the orbit of the International Space Station moves around the Earth, we get windows of opportunaty when we can see the station. We currently have about 10 days when we can see it at dusk, then we have to wait a month for it to be visible at dawn, and then another month until it is visible at dusk again, towards the end of November.
Oh, and the station is very bright indeed, thanks to it’s huge solar panels!
