Spot the International Space Station

The International Space Station is a collaborative project by five space agencies: NASA, Roscosmos, JAXA, ESA, and CSA. It is about 260miles from the Earth on the low Earth Orbit (LEO) and orbits the Earth at 17,100 miles per hour. At this speed, it orbits the Earth approximately 15.54 times a day.

It might seem impossible to spot the station from the ground, but NASA has released the best times to see the ISS from thousands of locations worldwide on its website. Select your location to get the best viewing times.

During these times, the station will be visible to our naked eye and would appear like a fast-moving plane but much higher and much faster. You don’t need binoculars and telescopes.

According to ISS experts, the best time to view would be within a few hours before or after the sun sets or rises, as the sun reflects off the spaces and contrasts against the darker sky.
