Hi all:
ISS Visible:
The ISS will be visible from New England  and most of
North America for the next two weeks in the Evening
hours.

Tonight Friday night, there is a good pass around 8pm
est.

If you do not have a tracking program, please check
the NASA web pages for tracking and Visibility data. 
There have been several good reports of very bright
reflections from ISS.
