Re: ISS VISIBLE?



ISS is pretty simple to see.  Just use your tracking routine or the visible
satellite web page to know when and where to look.  It isn't quite as bright
as MIR, but still easy to see.

Most of the Iridium watching is the "Flares" the Iridium birds have a very
reflective surface that at times will glint with small areas on the Earth
producing a VERY bright "Flare" in the sky (sometimes visible during the
day!).

Satellite watching is loads of fun, be sure to be in the darkest spot you
can find.
