International Space Station

After a break of several weeks, from today and for the coming days, the International Space Station is once again visible in the evening skies over Europe.

For a number of weeks the orbit of the ISS has been such that it was only visible in Europe early in the morning. From this evening’s pass around 19:40 CET, the ISS will once again be visible from locations in Europe (assuming there are no clouds) as a bright star moving across the sky after sunset.

Use one of the following websites to find out when the ISS is visible from your location and where to look:
