The Majesty of an ISS Flyby – Part 2

On a recent Saturtday morning, I headed to the highest accessible viewing point around and watched for almost 6 minutes as the International Space Station flew almost directly over my head. My view stared with a speck of light rising from about 10 degrees above the horizon in the southwest. It flew almost directly over head and disappeared into the coming dawn in the north east. It was truly amazing to see the largest object ever constructed off the planet

Once you’ve viewed an ISS pass, it’s hard NOT to spot the station if it’s visible. It looks like nothing else in the sky, it moves at its own very steady speed, never varying, never changing.
