Spotted the International Space StationI saw the International Space Station (ISS) this evening, as it crossed over Chennai. It was easily recognisable, as it sailed across the sky, from the NNW direction towards the SE. It looked like a bright star, much like the planet Venus. It took approximately 6 minutes to cover the distance, from one end of the horizon to the other.
The ISS can be spotted on various days, until 5 March 2017. Most times it orbits low on the horizon, so it cannot be spotted easily, even on a dark night. However, there are a few days when sighting it is still possible.
To get the exact time when you can spot the Space Station over your city you can check the NASA website. Enter country and location to get the details.
