Seeing the International Space Station (ISS) – something missingIs it really possible to see the ISS in the sky? ISS is slightly larger than a 747 airplane. When the aircraft is flying high @ 10 km, we can barely see the aircraft except when it releases smoke or trails. The ISS is at around 360 km high. How is it possible to see a slightly larger object but at 360 km? One reason could be the ISS is flying low, low like 10-15-20 km? But that is not what is said about the ISS orbits.
Can anyone explain this?
